Need More Proof It’s an Addiction?

My new hero is a fellow Bostonian, Michael Prager. I mentioned him briefly yesterday as proof of what I’ve been writing here for the last year — that addictive behavior can latch onto food in destructive ways.

Long before I realized I could only beat my addiction if I started treating it as such, and long before I started this blog, Prager was well on the road to recovery I now find myself on.

There’s a great article on him in The Washington Post you all must read. So hit the link and go learn from this man.

Conquering food addiction

Sitting across a Starbucks table from Michael Prager a few weeks ago, I’d never have guessed that he once weighed 365 pounds. Or that he’s an addict.

  1. Great article! Any addiction can be very serious and affect many people. I found a book which I found most helpful written by Lisa Espich called Soaring Above Co-Addiction. It is a memoir-style self-help book sharing the authors honest and poignant story of family addiction and recovery and deals with all types of addictions.
