Need strong support

Hi I'm a food addict who has only 20 days of abstinence last July and gained 18 to 20 pounds several surgeries but no change on my eating. I'm so tired yet I won't auto and I have 25 years of recovery on other 12 step programs. I'm off balance , spending crazy , and impulse driven . I'm doing well on life but can't cope with day to day stuff(although I mask well to people who don't know what the disease looks like)

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
