welcome. congrats on kicking drugs to the curb. I dabbled many years ago and with God's grace I became pregnant and gave it all up for good. I prayed and prayed for his help and I guess my child was god's blessing in several ways. Never looked back. good luck and you are strong you can do this.

Any addiction is so hard to control but you are already in the process of fighting one so you already have the tools and a very strong will to help you fight this one too! This is a great place to help you with this one. I wish you the best of luck and if you ever need an ear just holler!

You are not alone...none of us could do it alone...that's why we're here. So no worries there. emoticon on choosing a drug free lifestyle...If you can kick that habit, you can kick this one. You just need to swap out the food addiction with healthy habits. Sounds easier than it is...but I think you are in the right place for support...we will do the best we can. Start using the features here. Tune into your body. If your like me you use food to avoid and to numb out. Don't be afraid of those feelings, and deal with whatever it is you are avoiding if that's the case. You will find that you aren't as "hungry" as you think you are.

Welcome aboard!

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.

"Plant a seed of friendship; reap a bouquet of happiness." - Lois L. Kaufman

A friend is someone who you can tell your
complaints; a good friend is someone you
can tell your dreams. --Dale Dauten

Life without friends is like a garden without flowers.

Welcome to the team! First I want to tell you how much I admire you for fighting the drug addiction...what an accomplishment...I hope you're proud of yourself and fully realize how strong you are.

Now you realize you need to do something about the food in order to be your healthiest...good for you. This site can offer you a lot of very valuable tools...I use the nutrition and fitness trackers every day. And the people here are amazing...so very supportive.

I think you, like most of us who are emotional eaters, have some work to do learning to actually deal with your emotions. It's not easy, but it can be done. Not sure if you've worked with any kind of professional counselor, but it would be a good idea. You want to make sure you don't trade one kind of addiction for another (I've been guilty of that myself). You want to get a handle on this once and for all. We'll be here for you cheering you on every step of the way!! Best of luck to you on this journey!!

I am a recovering drug addict who have turned to food. I eat pretty much 24/7. I'm up once or twice in the middle of the night. That's insanity! When others are asleep and getting their rest I'm up eating. It has gotten so bad,as soon as I get through eating I'm thinking about eating again. It's starting to effect how I feel on the inside and not to mention how I feel about how I look on the outside. To be honest I've struggled with weight all my life however when I was on drugs it kept my weight down. Today I'm living a drug free life and I want to be happy in this life(My Life). So,I'm asking for help because I cant do this alone. I tried.
