Default Abstinence

Most of us are familiar with the basic principles of good nutrition. By abstaining from compulsive overeating, we are giving our bodies the best possible treatment. By avoiding refined sugars and starches, we eliminate empty calories and choose those foods with the protein, vitamins, and minerals necessary for good health.

- From Food for Thought for Today

I had trouble with this word because all I could think of was well how can I abstain, I have to eat. What I needed to do was stay away from what was not good for me.

My bridge party was a good example of that. I got back into the old thinking "I deserve a treat today. This is a party, a little bit won' hurt me." I ended up putting my blood sugar up and it took two days to get it back down to normal.

It doesn't matter what the substance is. Some is good, more is better is part of my disease talking, not my recovery. It is the thinking not the substance that is the problem. There is nothing wrong with food. It is about making healthy choices.


Love always,


I share because I care.
