Me too. Let me know what you find out. I haven't talked about this much with my sponsor, but maybe it's time.

Wow! Thanks for the responses, everybody! I didn't think anybody responded because I didn't get an email. Hmmm...gotta check my settings.

I'm going to google "inventory on relationship with food" and see what I come up with. I'll be back.

I haven't done a 4th step on my issues with food, per se, but I have talked to my sponsor about it. I find reading and posting on different Spark threads helpful, too. Kind of like an anonymous 5th.

It is a good idea. Everyone's lists are different and each one of mine has been different (with some nagging similarities:). I have inventoried atypical things. One of my most helpful was putting "old ideas" on my resentment list such as the idea of what "a good daughter" looks like. Very helpful. I would certainly think one could have a resentment or a fear connected to food. Additionally, my sponsor and sponsees all include "personal conduct in general" on the sexual conduct inventory (you know, the stuff that needs to come out that may not have through resentment, fear, or sex. Interesing idea! I certainly resent "diets" in a big way!

Lori, I like the idea. Unlike you, food became my 'drug' of choice long after giving up alcohol. I was anorexic for years and only ate to sustain. I'm not sure where the change occurred. I should really look at that.

I don't think I ever did a 4th step inventory about food or alcohol, just other people. The drinking and the eating were the way I handled those resentments, and I had to sort out the thinks I could change from the things I couldn't change, and deal with life through the program.

Do you have an OA chapter near you? AA and OA go hand in hand for many people with those two addictions.

Hey, everybody. Just thought I'd post here to see if anybody's done an inventory (4th step) on their relationship to food. You see, food was actually my very first "drug of choice"--my way of coping when I was growing up.

Any thoughts?
