Food Addiction Speaks
I received this from a friend who is also a food addict. It's a humbling reminder of what I and so many other people are dealing with. Recently, I have been experiencing the thoughts expressed in this article (I have no idea who wrote it, but whoever it was nailed the target). This is quite frightening because I can't afford to let up on my program, especially with my health issues and history of family addictions. It's no joke. Food addiction KILLS.
Hello... just in case you forgot me....
I am your disease.....
I Hate meetings....I Hate higher powers. I Hate anyone who has a program. To all who come in contact with me, I wish you death and I wish you suffering.
Allow me to introduce myself, I am the disease of addiction,. I am cunning, baffling and powerful
Thats Me. I have killed millions and I am pleased.
I love to catch you with the element of surprise. I love pretending I am your friend and lover.
I have given you comfort haven't I? Wasn't I there when your were lonely?
When you wanted to die, didn't you call on me? I was there. I love to make you hurt. I love to make you cry. Better yet, I love to make you so numb you can neither hurt nor cry. When you can't feel anything at all. This is true gratification. And all that I ask from you is long term suffering. I've been there for you always. When things were going right in your life, you invited me. You said you didn't deserve these good things, and I was the only one who would agree with you;. Together we were able to destroy all the good things in your life. People don't take me seriously. They take strokes seriously, heart attacks, even diabetes, they take seriously. Fools. Without my help these things would not be possible. I am such a hated disease, and yet I do not come uninvited. You choose to have me. So many have chosen me over reality and Peace.
More than you hate me I hate all of you who have a 12 step program. Your program, Your meetings, Your higher power. All of these things weaken me, and I can't function in the manner I am accustomed to. Now I must lie here quietly. You don't see me but I a growing bigger than ever. When you only exist, I may live. When you live I may only exist. But I am here....
Now until we meet again, If we meet again, I wish you death and suffering.
