Food relapse

Friday, June 24, 2016

Everybody has an addiction. Mine happens to be food. For the past few days I just have been eating everything. My healthy lifestyle went out the window and now I'm here to try to pick back up the pieces. I can't afford a cheat day, because the day turns into days. Yes I am feeling so defeated, because I was doing so well. I really need something I can stick to long-term. Any help is appreciated!

    6. Part 2 just reminds you how attached you were to it and you give it a weak smile. You can do this. You can overcome this. Humans are not meant to be subject of the Earth. We THRIVE! Don't give up! Don't give in. No woman left behind!

    6. The cravings never stop. This is a warning. 6 months from now, a year from now, 5 years from now... the cravings are there like the air you breathe. But gets easier. Like grief, it come is waves. Each time it gets a little easier to the craving

    5. Part 2 I don't want to push my faith on you. I'm just saying it worked for me so I offer it to you as a solution.

    5. Soooooo, maybe you've found you can't do it on your own. That's why you have the app right? I couldn't have quit smoking without (TBH) praying for God's help. By admitting I needed supernatural strength to get over the addiction. Maybe you faith,

    4. (Part4) also fail. You are only better than them when you get back up! Keep going. Keep fighting. Keep striving.

    4. (Part3) Failure is acceptable as long and you pick yourself up. Sometimes you can't do it alone and that's ok. A Jewish Proverb: a righteous man falls 7 times and rises for the 8th try. Don't quit because you're not better than those who have

    4. (Part2) when a trigger happens- your bodies first response is to feed the addiction. The goal for this step is to sloooooooow your actions down and correct what you are about to do before you relapse. This is hard! It's ok to fail at this few time

    4. Triggers: these little... poopers can ruin anyone. They are different from person to person but they are the same to be delt with. You have to retrain your brain in how you handle those triggers. This takes time which is why this step is number 4.

    3. (Part 2) eventually, no became my answer. When the craving and burning desire crept up, i would say out loud "no" and i would get busy with something else. I would have to say no several times until the feeling would go away.

    3. In EVERY aspect of your life you need someone to tell you "no" i had my employees (i was a manager) telling me "no" while they were leaving for a smoke break. My husband told me no smokes at home. And all my friends were telling me no.

    2. Clean it all out. I had to make it dramatic. I threw away every lighter, cigarette, and anything that even smelled like smoke. I avoided anyone who smoked and I spent a lot of frustrated time stuck at work.

    My addiction isn't food... it's a MILLION other things. Smoking was the hardest for me to quit. From an ex smoker with a severe addiction, maybe i can help. 1. Find what fuels the desire for the addiction. What are your triggers? Stress? depression?
