Giving up the food was only part of the equation—working the steps was the other half. One of the first assignments was discussing the difference between admitting and accepting that I was a food addict. This was key for me to realize and to understand. I could easily say I was a food addict but every time I picked up extra food, I was not accepting that fact. I was living in denial and it was ruining my life.
