I've been working in my workbook on the 1st and 2nd steps. Something I realized while working on it is that at times in my life when I thought I had control over my food, my spending was out of control.
I've been in OA a little over a week now and I'm finding that the last few days, I've been wanting to spend money. On anything pretty much. I just want to SHOP. For the "fun" of it. I'm aware that my spending can be a compulsion too and am having to really watch out for that demon as well.
I went to a noon meeting today and expressed how I was really wanting to go shopping today. By talking about it, I was able to avoid it and for today, I have stayed abstinent AND I've not spent a dime unnecessarily.
Anyone else relate to this?
