I can so relate to your feelings and your behaviors I was once there too, and if I don't keep coming back here. I am in immediate danger of going back to the non stop eating & eating trash, and feeling like I am going to die...I need the we of this program. I need a constant reminder that I am a food addict and I have a bio chemical addiction to sugar flour & wheat, I also added high fat foods to my list. I have found here that by eliminating them from my body the cravings go away and the beauty of it is I only have to do it one day @ a time!!
This is a we program. We need the loving help and support of one another. United we stand divided we fall. Sponsorship is one of the tools of our program, It was suggested to me when I came here to attend 90 meetings in 90 days...that was a long while ago and I haven't missed a day since. I need the meetings they are my medicine. After the meeting we ask questions and give out phone numbers, please collect numbers then make out reach calls from those who may be experiencing what you are experiencing or those whom you can relate to, and most important listen with an open mind and keep coming back. Here is a link to the phone meeting times and numbers.
As your journey continues you will learn more about the tools of recovery, attached is a link to the tools on our website. There are many tools. You will learn them as you go...most important keep coming back... Again welcome home!! Glad you are here.
