Food can and is a very powerful addiction to many. In my research writing my book, I found that many alcoholics and drug addicts, particularly women, have food disorders as well. These are taken very seriously as many with food addiction/disorders are of a fragile nature. Not because they are weak but because food, something we must consume daily, is their demon.
Those of you with food addictions are no different than those of us with alcohol/drug addictions. It is one day at a time and we have to turn our will and lives over to a Higher Power...whatever or whomever that is for you.
