Dear Friends & Total Complete Strangers!
Here is a YouTube video I recorded this morning for anyone in recovery from addiction!

I’m a recovering binge eater new to intermittent fasting to lose weight and reduce my high blood pressure. I had about an hour to wait before I could eat breakfast (18 hours since I ate dinner yesterday), which I wanted to do because when I do that I lose about 2 lbs per week. Even though I was drinking water and trying to stay calm it was very hard to stay away from the food, so I asked my inner wise self what I should do. “Help someone!” came the answer.
So, I went to Thomas Hall’s hypnosis website ( https://www.thomashallhypnosis.com ), found his Patreon link, and signed up with my debit card to be a monthly donor to his wonderful videos, many of which are free on YouTube ( https://m.youtube.com/user/sable4e ) and have helped me not binge.
I also decided to record this YouTube video because art is my medicine, speaking and using my voice is my gift, and building and serving community is my mission.
So I hope this helps you, if you are a recovering addict of any kind, be it food, drugs, alcohol, gambling, cutting, shopping, romance/relationships/codependence, sex, or self-sabotage: it’s all “using”, it’s all the same, it’s all addiction (and avoidance).
***When you want to use, stop, breathe, and help someone.***
Be good to yourself, because you are worthy of this and so much more. Also, when you are kind to yourself, you help others, because We are All One 🙂
Make yourself a beautiful day,
