Restore Me To Sanity

I'm back trying to apply the 12 steps to food addiction for the 1st time in 15 years. I've been working a 12-step program for drug use for 22 clean years. Tried Spark Tools a year ago to try and eat like an earthling but have decided sugar is too much of a trigger food for me. Also, I am joining the community now, which is new.

I am an emotional eater who is retraining to see food as a way to live instead of a reward, and it's time to take care of me! Using OA meetings and a food sponsor working an abstinence that isn't too rigid. This is my first time using social media of any kind. I'm a very private person :)

Thank you for the 'piggy bank' goodie!
That was so sweet.
I really appreciate your words of encouragement.

Your weight loss is amazing.
Congratulations to you too!

So happy to see you and thank you for commenting on my blog.
If I can help in any way just let know. I hope OA does work for you, but if not do not give up hope. I went to OA for a couple of years, but it was actually as I worked on my emotional healing, I was emotionally ill long before I drank. In fact drinking took over from food for me as a way of coping. I am now thankfully at a place where food is no longer the problem it had always been. I am now happily sober in AA for over 40 years - still one day at a time. :)

Big hugs and love Wispy

Thank you for commenting on my blog - I have been (successfully) with AA for eight years but with OA - nope, it does not work for me although I have tried a lot. I need to stop bashing myself over the head because it doesn´t work and continue the journey... best of luck I really hope you find what you need!
