BEWARE the Poison Bait and Switch

What the heck? What is going on with this app? I told it to use my location so it should be able to tell me where the closest Starbucks is. They are everywhere, worm on a hookcome on! I have to be at the soccer game in fifteen minutes. It must be in the Target.

Target Café?! What is that? That is not a Starbucks. Where is this place? Whatever! .

On Oct. 11, 2014, I put down two of my most insidious poisons: Tab and Fannie May candy. (Read about it here) I have been feeling pretty good about myself. I have lost weight and the compulsion is almost non-existent. Little did I know what lurked around starbucksthe corner…

The Poison Bait and Switch. I found myself having Starbucks Café Mocha two or three times a week. In the past, if I had one every two or three months that was a lot. I played Trivia Crack in every free moment.

What was going on? I guess I should have known. I always said it was not just the alcohol buzz I liked but the sugar buzz I got from alcohol. It was no real surprise when my Fannie Man intake sky rocketed after I quit drinking but I thought once I finally stopped Fannie May I would be all set.

Here is what I know to be true for me: when I began to shine a light on my poison/dark side and say what I knew to be true in my heart about all the ways I was poisoning myself, something moved a bit. My dark side began to lose its power. This will happen for you too. Your subconscious will begin to look at ways to help you. You will meet people, hear a song, read this email. Coincidences begin to occur that are letting you know you are on the right track. You will feel empowered.flashlight

That is why in 2015 it is time to Shine A Light on your Poison and your Poison Bait and Switch. Now is the time to make a list of all the ways you have been poisoning yourself and, if you have put down some poisons, a list of all the other negative behaviors that have reared their ugly heads.
