Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous - Samantha and Rosanne

Thursday, 25 February 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous

Samantha and Rosanne grew up loving lollies (candy) and sweetened foods and they spent a lot of their lives dieting to control their weight. Both suffered depression and anxiety and food was a way to cope with not being able to express their feelings. Their eating impacted on their work and relationships and eventually they found 12th Step recovery fellowships that helped them to cope better.

But it wasn’t until later in life, after years of food related misery that 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.

If you’re experiencing difficulties in life as a result of your relationship to food and eating then Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous could help you. Give them a call in Australia on 1800 717 446, email them at faaustralia@foodaddicts.org or see their website foodaddicts.org.
