Not omly did she think it was a good idea she said she would most likely be following as she and her hubby are on a weight lose journey of their own.At least when I go stay next friday and catch a meeting with them I won't have to be to afraid of them trying to feed me stuff that are no-no's
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.

No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
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.
It's not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.
