Dave, a recovering addict from the United States, co-founder of SugarXGlobal, registered dietitian, and co-author of The Fix for Cravings who detoxed from sugar, grains, and 25 years of ADHD medicins shares in-depth about his addiction to primary food but other substances as well, the ways how he understands addictions and treats his own with following 12 steps principles.
He shows moments of his life, how he has been an artisan bread baker and transformed into the current himself, that he personally understands Addiction Interaction Disorder (one disease, many outlets), and often says, switching outlets is like switching seats on the Titanic; the ship is still sinking! His humble personality shines through in words that are encouraging and relatable, we can connect to his narrative and understand that regardless of our choice of drug we all can be in recovery.
His stories might resonate with many of us struggling with various types of addictions, and how he helped develop a system based on CARE (Connection, Action Steps, Recovery Protection, and Education) as the foundation for addicts to Grow. Recover. Transform. You can follow him on Twitter @DaveWolfeSRX, he can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, and followed during his 5 days challenge kicking off on 10 January about crushing cravings at https://www.5daycrushyourcravingschallenge.com.
