Case Study

I received a great question today written by a student, she asked, I watched a clip of you on Oprah today, in my university social psychology class. If you don't mind me asking, how did you afford your lifestyle of mass eating and in this certain interview you said you spent three days a week in bed?

I thought it was a great intuitive question and I will answer it very simply by saying, that I begged, I borrowed and I stole like any other addict, as it is the very same thing any addict would do. When an addict wants something they get it, and I talked about stealing in my book “Winning after Losing”. If you compared food to alcoholism, I was a gutter drunk. I think it’s great that this would be a topic in a psychology class who knew people would study me! Lol! Hope you are well and enjoying the spring… With love Stacey

Dear Stacey
I have to ask you, if you do not mind me doing so. Usually addictions do not go away, they just switch around. What are you addicited to now and how has it controled your current life?
Thank you for your time

Hi Wendy my new addiction of choice is shopping and it has gotten me in all sorts of financial trouble. I am currently working on this issue with my therapist and with my monthly support group. It was a good question. thanks Stacey
