Ep.006 An easy solution to addiction

FinalCoverArtIf you’ve heard my story before, you know that I was once addicted to drugs. You know that I ran away from home at 16, dropped out of high school, started dealing drugs, and even got caught and went to jail.

I’ve struggled with it all: binge-eating, starving myself, drug and alcohol problems, body mutilation, and toxic abusive relationships with men who treated me badly.

Episode 6 is about the core issue to all these problems. If you struggle with something familiar, listen in on this podcast to hear about all the crazy things I did and what I did to overcome them.

It wasn’t until much later in life, when I started wanting to improve my life, that I realized my problem wasn’t that I was addicted to drugs, food, and bad relationships.

I was addicted to something else that kept me coming back for more.

Listen to episode #6 as I tell more of my story and what I’ve learned in hindsight.

Love is energy. It is the energy needed to move in a positive direction. It behooves you to have love for your SELF. ~Kat Kim

    Honestly, I shed some tears listening to this podcast. I could relate to some things – emotional eating, starving and alcohol. Luckily, I overcome all of them, emotional eating was the hardest of them. I just said to myself this morning in the mirror, Deja, you look good and I love you. And then I smiled and laughed as much as I can 🙂
    Thank you for sharing. Much love and let’s make Valentines day everyday 😉 <3

      Oh my beautiful Deja, thank you for sharing this! It’s wonderful to hear you have overcome this. If you really get to the root of these issues, it is really due to a lack of self love and self worth. Love really is an amazing, powerful force that can heal. I love what you say: Lakes make Valentine’s Day everyday!

    Inspiring words, Kat. As someone who has also struggled with a drug addiction in the past, it was very encouraging to hear you discuss these things. Thanks to a support group of friends, I’ve been able to become free from all of that, and am in the best possible of situations.

    I’m so glad that you, as well, were able to break free and be the lovely woman you are today. All the best, and hugs. 😀

      Wow Matt! I had no idea you struggled with this! So here our past lives intertwine… =)

      Isn’t it great to know that we have come so far since then? We are truly extraordinary people. *winkwink*

        It seems we followed a somewhat similar path, indeed. As always, I feel very humbled to have you as one of my great friends in these new adventures.

    I was surprised but more amazed how you were able to transform your life from full of addiction into a life that inspires so many. I am really happy how you got out from all your struggles in life. This is really inspiring, Kat.

    What I got from this is that the important thing for getting out from any kind of addiction is pointing out what we really are addicted of. I do believe that it is significant to know the cause first if you want to deal with the effects.

    Another thing that I realized that change should come from a deep desire of wanting to have a great transformation. It all boils down to “love” again, a desire to love oneself.

      Yes, it really does boil down to love. I think you understand this material better than most Jean! Thank you for your deep listening. =)

        And you are spot on about going to the ROOT of the issue first!

    Your story should be heard all over the world especially to those who want to just give up. You are an inspiration to everyone especially those who are struggling and going through the same thing.

    Thank you for reminding me to love myself. Most often, especially with women, people see what they don’t want. You change the way I see myself and I thank you again for that, Kat!

      Aww, thank you so much Abbey. It means the world that I can help others by sharing my story. I am grateful for you!

    Kat! You are so courageous for sharing this to the world. What made you want to change? Was it a realization, a person, an event or something else?

      Thank you for your comment Zarra! I had an awakening of sorts. I will have to share this in a podcast! Thanks for the inspiration!

    I want to improve my life as well! Where do I start?

    I want to be able to influence my friends to stop smoking. How were you able to do it? My friends told me they have tried many times but failed.

    When I feel sad, I resort to food. My weight gain is noticeable already that many people have pointed it out already. I saw a photo of myself lately when I told myself that I want to change it, I am having a hard time to avoid eating more than what I should. What do I do?

    I love your suggestion of making a habit to think about the things I love about myself. You are awesome! <3 Thanks Kat!
