More and more, I’m becoming more interested in the spiritual aspect of my life, not just my recovery from food addiction. That aspect has interested me more than other parts, even before starting this blog and year long endeavor.
Being new to this whole recovery scene, I never realized that the 12 Steps are almost entirely a spiritual program. I don’t know what I thought it was, I guess more about support, meetings and not using the addictive substance anymore.
I thought this project was going to be about quitting the sugar, and that the inner work would help keep me strong and clear and focused on my goal and the reasons I have for committing to this action. That is still true, but now I want to focus on the spiritual aspect for its own sake. And, guess what? The 12 Steps is a perfect vehicle to focus on the spiritual aspect of my life.
