12 step program for cake-oholic?
Saturday, October 18, 2008
I am a recovering cake-oholic. Cake almost ruined my life. I have not had cake since 20 May 2008. I still think about cake. I see cake every where I go. I can smell cake from a hundred yards away at least. I know I cannot even have a little piece of cake or I will fall off the wagon. Cake is exactly what was wrong with my diet. I ate the right foods plus cake. The sugar and fat and total carbs filled me up physically and emotionally. Cake was the best antidote for pain, fixed every kind of pain. The really good cake comes from the Amish farmer's market. The owner would get excited when I walked through the door because it was a sure sale. Since starting the Spark program I feel that I have made a huge number of positive changes except conquering my obsession with cake. I am seriously wondering if I need some kind of special program to quit, hypnosis? Aversion therapy? or maybe there is a 12 step program. At least I know what my dieting achilles heel is now.
