Hi my name is Sheryl & I'm an addict (NA & OA)

Monday, March 14, 2011

Hi I am 17 1/2 yrs clean in NA (Narcotics Anonymous) and New to OA (Overeater's Anonymous) I had 3 weeks abstinence in OA until I relapsed today. I have tools to abstain from drugs & alcohol, "no matter what don't pick up" but food is a necessity of life! So I am finding it hard to stay on track. Thank God for Sparkpeople and sponsors. I have faith I will do well. I knew before I indulged that it was not a good idea, but like all good ideas if I don't run them by my support group I may end up acting out on bad ideas. That is exactly what I did. I saw the signs and chose to ignore them. Blatant disregard for the healthy choices I prefer to make today. If you are new to SparkPeople, you are in a good place. Find a Team, introduce yourself and Keep coming back!

    I too fell off the wagon, but the most important thing you can do and get back up and sweetie you got back up!! As with anything this is a struggle and three weeks is one heck of an accomplishment!! I am in your corner and I know you can do it!!

    Thanks for the reminder to think before I eat. Remember, you can do this, one day at a time.
