I'm a Food-aholic
Wednesday, January 06, 2016
Hi! My name is Richard and I'm a food-aholic !!
Yes, I'm addicted to to food and unlike other addictions- I must continue to partake in my addiction to survive. I have to battle it ONE BITE at a time.
Don't misjudge or think I'm downgrading other addictive behaviors (drugs, alcohol, etc). Those are serious life-destroying addictions, but isn't my addiction as well?
My addiction has caused family stress, illness, money problems (mostly health related expenses due to poor nutritional habits). It causes depression and anxiety as well.
Unfortunately, the source of my addiction must continue if I plan to survive. (You can only live so long without eating!). It is a struggle. I mean it when I have to battle my addiction in every bite. Food PORN is everywhere as well. Advertisements for pizza, burgers, fries... Milk shakes, ice cream, snacks... You can't watch television without all the food porn. You can't drive two miles with out seeing some form of advertising for food/restaurant.
How many other food-aholics are out there? Join me in the real Bite by Bite battle!
