Brigid and John both grew up on the New South Wales coast and were actively involved in the beach culture as children. They had addictions in their family backgrounds and struggled with weight and body image. They loved sugar products, had difficulty in relationships due to their food obsessions and did not understand that their weight problems were related to the type of foods that they were attracted to as children. Later in life, after years of food related misery they found recovery in Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous (FA). They discovered the discipline and support that they needed after years of addiction to foods based on sugar and flour and excess eating. Their lives changed dramatically and they found that they could live in freedom from their obsession with food.
Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous, also known as FA is a fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience and mutual support, are recovering from the disease of food addiction. People who find help in FA vary greatly: some were obese, underweight, and bulimic. Some tried diets, exercise, therapy, support groups or in-patient treatment programs without success. FA is free and open to anyone who wants to stop eating addictively.
