Why did I leave Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous?

1) They didn't help my binges.

2) The meetings were taking up too much of my time.

3) My sponsor suggested I slow down on my career choice (certified physical trainer) and concentrate on FA by making phone calls to strangers and being more involved.

4) Food is my friend not my enemy. I am my own worst enemy.

hope you find your path.

I was reading about addiction and the writer saisd that most addicts regardless of their addiction recover without a support system or 12 step program because when the cost of the addition to you ( that is all of the costs like with food the cost of the food the new clothes the physical harm to your health etc) is greater then the benefits you derive from the addiction you will stop. seems silly counting the cost but it does work.

If FA wasn't for you, keep looking. Try what's available to you until you hit on something that feels right. You *will find your way.
Have you checked out We Bite Back?
If I can help in anyway let me know.
