Headed in the right direction...
This is my first time to FAA...I have been attending NA meeting for the last 6 months to help support a close friend and really have taken a liking to the 12 step approach. I couldn't really connect with the people of NA on a deep spiritual level because I lacked a history of abuse with illegal drugs. However, I do have a history with the abuse of food especially during emotionally charged events both positive and negative, which is why I am here. I do have clear addicitive behavior and very much so when it comes to food.
As a first step I have located a face-to-face meeting in my area and have even contacted the secretary of the meeting in hopes of getting conected with the group as soon as possible. I have a reached a point in life that living with my addiction is out of control and hitting bottom is near. I want to live a life free from the holds of my addicition and prosper in ways I never thought possible before.
