Addictions are not just about chemicals and alcohol. You can be addicted to just about anything. Food addiction is a tough one to beat. It’s not like you can just stop eating! Comfort food is flagrantly flashed in front of you in about 50% of commercials. Just about every celebration is accompanied by the smells and sights of high carb, low nutrition selections. How do you learn to say no to this most acceptable of addictions? First, says Dr. Jim Wilder, understand the unmet need behind the drive for food. As we head into the holidays, arm yourself with a new perspective for the great food challenge.
Join us Tuesday Dec 2, 2014 at 7:00 pm Est Usa as Miss Raina discusses the struggle of addiction.
For one to struggle with an addiction to drugs, alcohol, cigarettes and unhealthy food, is a life challenge. For many, their lives are shaped, challenged and changed forever by the overuse of a product that gives rise to a peaceful feeling. Although the joyous feeling is temporary, the moments of a feeling are strong enough to control the actions of ones life.
We must understand that addiction reaches all of us at some point in our lives. Most of us are unaware that an addiction has a grasp on our life until we have put ourselves in a place of trouble and despair.
