In the past, I use to meet life's challenges with substances: food, drugs, alcohol, or men. Or I found ways to check out via shopping, watching movies, etc. When I was 24, I hit an emotional and spiritual bottom. I was also struggling with a food addiction. I had been bulimic starting at 16.

As the universe wills it, I landed in a 12-Step Program for Food Addiction.
It was in that program that I put down my addictive substances like flour, sugar, drugs, and alcohol. I picked up spirituality. Because they told me, in order to recover I had to pick up a power greater than myself.
