Insights from Abstinence, Second Edition:
• “Abstinence was not an overnight, light-bulb moment. It occurred one baby step at a time.”
• “It takes a person to get abstinent, a Higher Power to guide that person, and a group to support that abstinence.”
• “My sponsor told me to make a ‘food corral’—to draw a circle and write inside the foods and eating behaviors that caused me problems. As long as I stayed outside the corral, I was abstinent.”
