Default Feeling a wee bit sad about abstinence right now

I just saw that my two ex-boyfriends, Ben and Jerry, have released a flavor into this world in a frozen but non-dairy form.

I love my abstinence. I love how much not eating sugar has given me. No-sugar means a full life and wellbeing and I wouldn't give it up for the world.

But a segment of my friends are celebrating that this new confection is vegan, and one of the flavors is a favorite of mine from childhood.

I think its normal to feel a little left out and a little sad. I'm not going to eat about it, but I do have to acknowledge that I feel a pull towards "at least trying it once."

I suppose things like this are going to come up from time to time.

Blog, I resonate with your posts so much. Ben and Jerry lie to you about how good they are. They really, for me, mean misery, isolation, and an early death. I am glad you are choosing not to try it once. I can appreciate the sadness and the desire to try it though.

Last week I celebrated a year of abstinence. As of this morning, I have lost over 100 lbs. My story, (the weight part) part is chronicled here in the 100 lb. section. I came to OA the first time about 1980. I eventually relapsed but am now again living a life free from the bondage of food addiction. I am no longer living a life of chronic loneliness and isolation. I am freaking miracle.

Thank you God and Overeaters Anonymous.
