Thoughts on Addiction

Addictions get in the way of being your authentic self because they evoke automatic reactions instead of true, appropriately responsive actions or deliberate behavior based upon all of the choices in the moment.

I’ve been off dark chocolate and green jasmine tea, with soy milk, now for about three weeks. I feel like I can finally look at this “need” and judge whether it is adding to my life or detracting. I think I am coming out on the side of adding. In fact, I ended up adding coffee back in when I took away the green jasmine tea soy latte, which I make myself using Numi Monkey King Tea. I think the coffee needs to go and the dark chocolate must stay out of my diet. This type of caffeine seems to be causing my breasts to get all cyst-filled again. But the green tea and soy milk will be welcomed back in.

Thanks to Dr. Christine Northrup, I am no longer believing that soy is the root of all evil in the world. I’ve decided that it is right for some, not right for others, but right for me in moderation (if organic and not genetically modified). Ultimately, we all have to pay attention and make the right informed decisions regarding what we allow to enter our bodies.

  1. P.S. As of March 14, 2014, I am back to thinking soy can and will wreak havoc on most of us. It has, quite certainly, aided in the destruction of my gut. The present world we are living in is “over-soyed” to be sure. And to make matters worse, most of this is non-gmo soy. In any event, I’ve learned that I cannot tolerate any amount of soy. But the silver lining is that I’ve learned I can tolerate chocolate that does not contain soy lecithin. All that time I thought I was intolerant to chocolate–and it was actually the ubiquitous soy lecithin.
