Because of mental health and physical health problems, I am really slow.
If you like, you can sign up to receive updates from my blog so you will be notified when those happen.
My blog’s purpose is to write in clean detail
how I better understand and
my alcoholism, my depression
and my overeating.
I hope my writing helps you heal because the way I feel about myself today
and what I am accomplishing feels fantastic and is much better for me
than any drug I abused, alcoholic beverage I overindulged in, or obscenely
fattening meal ever made me feel.
And one important thing that would never have happened while I was
depressed, drinking, and/or overeating myself into
oblivion is how I turned my life around.
Every day, my life is better than it was yesterday, and
it is coming together.
Since 11-16-2007, I have worked hard on recovery from my crippling mindsets,
eventually going to psychotherapy plus AA Meetings.
On 10-17-2012, I first blogged about “Why Overeat in the First Place?”.
I spent the next 8 years searching for that answer.
Well, you know what?
PLUS, I also found out how to STOP ALL CRAVINGS!!
I no longer have any cravings for drugs, or alcohol;
No more yearning to get pot, speed, cocaine, or alcohol.
I can think and don’t have stressful thoughts bouncing around
in my mind, driving me to crave alcohol or drugs.
If you have issues in your life you manage to push away for a few months,
only for them to resurface every so often. I experience that with my overeating,
but I know what I need to do to get them stopped for good.
I know I have several important unmet needs I am putting
everything I have into getting them met.
Also, I still have some insomnia problems and terrible, crippling chronic fatigue.
But, everyday I do my best to keep moving forward, determined to overcome those.
Back to losing weight, I am astounded at how easy it is for me to lose weight.
I feel hunger, but it isn’t like it was where if I didn’t eat the second I felt hunger.
I thought I’d faint or not be able to think or that I’d get shaky if I didn’t eat right away.
And to date, I have lost 16 pounds since 7-11-2020.
Would you like to know how it feels to not have
cravings tormenting me all day long?
I know and understand firsthand why I overate, took drugs, blew my money, got blitzed drunk, and
self medicated to escape my painful, overwhelming life problems.
So, the focus of this blog is to explain the steps outlining how I get better so
you can see and decide how you can too.
And, along the way, I hope to make you laugh, maybe inspire you, and
provide you with a little entertainment
to keep you coming back.
