Celebrate Recovery, 12 Step
Wednesday, March 03, 2021
Tonight I will begin a 12 Step Recovery group as its co-leader. I completed one myself over a year ago and now will co-lead with the woman who lead mine. When I took my neighbor to CR she was a recovering addict from opioids, I, myself, was once again 50 pounds overweight and was starting to realize I had a FOOD problem. Of course I didn't "need" CR as my problem wasn't a substance...or so I thought.
My addiction to carbohydrates was creating dopamine issues in my brain similar to those of a heroin user! Scary as I came to this thought. I was an addict too, but mine was much worse as you have eat to live. This is a short portion of my testimony. We at SP are here because we ALL struggle with food issues. My CR group is a great place to find support and encouragers as we are on a road where we have to relearn to eat to live and not live to eat!
Find a group for support and join it, whether online or better in person. My SP has been wonderful, but my CR is great too!
