We met last night for our the first of 8 sessions. The food addicts group . . .
I felt good knowing I could shine a light on one good path up out of the bondage of food addiction. Yeah, I have one good working flashlight and it has carried me this far. I am free as long as I am abstinent, as long as food is not my recreation and it is just food to nourish my machine. When did it become so skewed? When food that was seasonal and transient became the norm on every street block. We were meant to binge on highly salient foods such as sugar/starch, salt and sugar. Meant to eat and then subsist on proteins and greens foraged. The times, they have changed yet we remain the same.
Next week we will be studying more on dopamine and the reward deficiency issue.
I am safe and sober.
