Coping with an eating disorder is something that many people deal with in secrecy not knowing where to turn for help. Brad Lamm took a moment to discuss an addiction that is often overlooked, that is the addiction to food.
"My son was only 8 years old when I caught him smoking cigarettes. If I had known then what I know now, I may have watched him closer as he approached his teenage years and started hanging around some dysfunctional neighborhood kids. When he landed himself in a lock-up, I didn't know where to turn. I consider myself very lucky to have stumbled on this program. As a single father with two jobs, I had no idea who took over raising my son until it was almost too late. I am relieved that there are people out there who are really willing to help."
