Why do many still ask, “Is alcoholism a disease or still of moral stigma? It’s not how much or how little you drink that proves alcoholism, it’s what happens to you when you do drink; social stigma has plagued the alcoholic through the years with moral judgment due to people being uneducated about the disease. The American survey done in 2010 states that 51.8% of Americans were current drinkers of the beverage alcohol. That is 131.3 million people. Youth aged 12-17 were at 13.6% for binge drinking and heavy drinking for young adults was at 40.6%. Binge drinking is 5 or more glasses in one setting and heavy drinking is 5 or more days in a 30 day period (American National Survey, 2010). Benjamin Rush, the famous philosopher of reason was the first to come up with the disease theory when it came to alcoholism. Rush stated that those losing control over the drink alcohol would create an imbalance to the nervous system (Meyer, 1996). The National Drug Survey in 2009, said 19.3 million people (ages 12 and older) needed treatment from the problem with alcohol but only 1.7 million received this treatment due to lack of insurance or insurance not covering the plan (Williamson, L. 2012). The Centers for Disease and Control says that more harm comes from not those that are alcohol dependent but those that drink in excess or hazardous drinking. When 10% of the population is doing both drugs and alcohol it costs our society a staggering half a trillion dollars a year (Carr, 2010). We have attributed addiction and alcoholism to willful misconduct, character flaws, weak will, moral turpitude, or just bad people. Science does not support these out dated stereotypes (Carr, 2010). Addiction is a disease of a person’s rewards system, which alters behaviors which limits conscious control. Decision making becomes damaged that abstinence simply is no longer a matter of choice (Carr, 2010).
Another diet is NOT the answer
There’s a good chance that a diet is what spiraled you into binge eating in the first place. I know that was the case for me. In the past I have experimented with several diets: low fat, low carb, and numerous others. And I kept looking for the diet that would end all of the confusion and allow me to escape the binge eating behaviors I had developed.
But thankfully I finally realized that another diet is not the answer.
In my experience, strict diets, especially those that revolve around limiting or completely eliminating foods, food groups, or macronutrients only add fuel to the binge eating fire.
The solution is not found in a diet, so don’t search for one.
We all overeat from time to time—taking an extra helping at Thanksgiving dinner or having dessert when you're already full. But for binge eaters, overeating is regular and uncontrollable. You use food to cope with stress and other negative emotions, even though afterwards you feel even worse. You may feel like you're stuck in a vicious cycle, but binge eating disorder is treatable. With the right help and support, you can learn to control your eating and develop a healthy relationship with food.
John chapter 4 is one of my favorite chapters in the Bible. Here in his conversation with The Woman at the Well, Jesus tells us about living water. He explains that God is Spirit and that those who worship must worship in spirit and in truth. In a day and time when it seems that everything is on overdrive, let's talk about what it means to drink deeply of the living water in the 21st century.

We are all imperfect human beings. Maybe you really stuck to your diet for a while. Maybe you did your tapping. Maybe you exercised as you planned. But at some point, you went on a binge. You ate too much. You drank too much. You ate the wrong foods. And now you feel like crap - physically and emotionally. And you fell of the wagon so badly that you kept binging for several more days. Or weeks. Or months. You've already failed, so why bother?
The purpose of this tapping session is to love and forgive ourselved after we've made the inevitable slip. You will slip, but piling guilt and shame and unforgiveness on top of it won't help. In fact, it will make it worse. It's an important lesson I teach in my Naturally Thin You Boot Camp and I'm sharing it today on this show. If you want to get back on track, it's time to forgive and move forward!
