Funny(or not so funny) Realization

December 9th, 2008 at 09:01 am

I was telling my best friend how I ate lunch out on Friday and then how my husband and I went out to dinner on Friday. We also went out to Dinner on Sunday. I spent $66 eating out this weekend. All of this was after almost 2 weeks of not eating out...not one single time! My best friend pointed out to me that I was like an alcholic...that one drink is never enough. I don't mean to offend anyone that suffers with alcholism, (this runs in my family so I know it is a serious issue) but I had never thought of my eating out or spending as an addiction. Both are an addiction, but I guess that I never thought of my spending addiction as being as serious as an alcholic addiction. Spending could end you up in the same place, though...no house, no possessions, and living on the street if you don't learn to curb your spending.

So I am back on the no eating out wagon. Starting today, no more eating out. None. Zero. Zilch.

My husband is coming to get my car...am tempted to go to lunch(as this is my addiction). But no...not going to do it! I refuse!

    I think that's why on some diets they tell you to eat what you want IN MODERATION because after 2 weeks of no sweets or junk food, it's all you want! Different drug, same symptoms.

    I posted about my own food/eating out addiction and how it relates to finances not long ago. Check out my post on my blog. Good luck staying on the wagon! I'm there myself so I'll hold you on if we hit some bumps. Smile

    I am a lot like this too. I agree with lizajane it's all about moderation, completely shut off something that feels good and you end up craving it. My addiction is clothes and makeup (mostly for my girls.) And yes, I do think it is an addiction.

    I don't know how to do this in moderation. This is definately something I am going to have to work on.
