Step 5: Confession – Jessica’s Story about Food Addiction Recovery

Here’s the fifth installment in Mormon Channel’s 12-part series about addiction recovery.

It is based on the fifth step of the addiction recovery program, which states:

Step 5 – Confession: Admit to yourself, to your Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ, to proper priesthood authority, and to another person the exact nature of your wrongs.

Jessica’s food addiction only got more serious when her husband passed away. Before she completely lost hope, she sought help. To quit drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes was one thing, and to change her life-threatening eating habits was another. Because she confessed her problems to herself, to God, and to someone who could help, recovery was possible.
