Claire is a food addict, which she says is a bit different from being a “Overeater.”  They are not overeaters, often, but they use food and its ingredients as a drug. Claire says anything floury would relieve her stress, give her confidence, and calm her anxiety.  She would also suffer withdrawals if she wasn’t eating certain foods.  She remembers her hands and arms shaking unless she ate sugary snacks.   Sugar was perhaps her first drug, stealing candy from candy machines at age six or seven.   But it wasn’t to satisfy a food craving, she says. Claire feels she was born with an addiction to sugary and floury foods, and she’s now “sober.”
