Food for the Soul reading from p. 18 (January 18th):
For years I tried to recover from my food problem but could not because I did not understand how addictive substances poisoned every area of my life. Even after learning about food addiction, I kept a tight grip on my sugar, flour, and wheat. Sure, I wanted to be thin, free of food obsession, and happy. I just wanted to have all of those things without having to make any changes.
It took years of pain and suffering for me to get to the point where I realized that I could not have my cake and sanity too. I became so miserable that nothing else worked. The FAA program offered me what I knew was my last chance! There is no place else for me to go.
Our program is for those of us who desperately want recovery. It is not magic, but it is magical.
For today, I openly express my gratitude for Food Addicts Anonymous.
