A 56-year-old female asked:

When following a 12 step program is it best to try and follow a food plan first or wait for the spiritual awakening?

Don't wait: There is no need to awake - it might happen, but the point is to make changes in your addictive behaviors. Talk with people involved in 12-step programs to get a sense of what they do day by day. Good luck.
