A very nice man came in because he was addicted to candy bars. He works out, has a good life, loving wife, likes his work, and so on.
Slamming candy bars into his mouth, as a diabetic, wasn’t doing his health, belt size or self-esteem any favors.
“We can go into your past and figure out why you feel the need to do this to yourself, or, we can give you a way to interrupt your behavior and make different choices.”
No surprise, he chose choices. A few days later, he proudly sent me his glucometer numbers.
Today he wrote me:
“Have not had a drop of candy since I saw you. I barely ever do the circuit interruption either. It’s been over a month. Please write away on how you saved a candy addicted-diabetics life. You are awesome Lisa, Thank you so much for my future.”
Love it. Love it! Oh, by the way, this was a ten-year habit.
