What is Sugar? Refined Sugar ("Sucrose") is a Drug.

This is the home page of the original 12 Step program for recovery from Anti-Nutrient Addiction - beware of cloned versions on the Internet, that claim i.e.: we now understand that it is not OK to use artificial sweeteners to get off Sucrose, or state that "food" is addictive. In Overeaters Anonymous we acknowledge that we are addicted to volume eating and it is a proces addiction. If it is nutritious and natural food then it cannot be physically addictive, however antinutrients (" trigger foods") like Sucrose, Sodium Chloride, Caffeine are not foods and are more appropriately classified as drugs. Whereas synthesized, or genetically modified, refined i.e.: grains, or dairy products and so on, simply put are just "Junk". We urge the recovering antinutrient addict, at the outset, to get very clear on these definitions and to avoid the dis-ease establishment mystification that is so prevalent and pervasive.


In "A.N.A.*. (t.m.)" we suggest zero tolerence on these (*) substances (ie. sucrose, caffeine, salt, refined flour etc.). In all other respects our program is a mirror of both "Overeaters Anonymous (t.m.)" and "Media Anonymous (t.m.)"

VOL. 1 NO.1.ISSN 1195-759X "JUNK FOOD ANONYMOUS (t.m.)"

The following is a personal description of symptoms(~)
and testimony of recovery from anti-nutrient* addiction, by one
of the founding members of "Junk Food*" Anonymous - please keep an open mind:


My name is Georgie and I am a grateful recovering "Junk Food*" and
" Media Addict " this is my story -


At times I can identify with the lead caracter of the
George Lucas film entitled "THX1138", as he emerged into the sunset,
a survivor from a technological "Brave New World" (Orwell / Huxley)
type of society, not unlike our own.

Billions of advertising--or to be more correct-- "Propaganda"
dollars are spent every year,to convince us that
"...Sucroses the real thing". To ensure that citizens are kept in a
constant state of cybernetic narcosis~ and the electro-chemical
bondage~ of perpetual consumtion, of the industrially synthesized
"Fiz Biz*" drinks and fluffy white "Twinkle Puff*" munchie cubes.
"Smile" anorexic~, while marching robot like through eternal underground
labyrinths of shopping complexes, with no beginning and no end.
I am one, I've been there. Today however thanx to my 12 step programs
"I am no longer alone "

..." I have a choice".

I can remember as a child sitting in my room suffering from
"Insulin Shock~" and not being able to identify the causes, realizing
there was something dreadfully wrong with the feelings of confusion
and utter chaos I felt after "snacking*".

FORTY hours per week of radiation from " The Tube" had already
conditioned me, to be in denial that there was any connection between
my body and mind. I did not realize it at the time, but I was receiving
my first lessons, in my eventual awareness, of the correlation between
media addiction and "junk food*" addiction. Media is the root addiction
of all of the other addictions.

I was, some fifteen years later, in early adulthood,already in the
throws of chronic alcoholism. my attempts to articulate "THIS~" feeling,
in a personal periodical small press publication, yeilded a kind of Dada
gibberish, posturing as poetics. I was on the track of what Sucrose was
but could not put it into focus, let alone describe Sucrose.

Prolific reading did not help. In fact the more self-help psycology
and new-age metaphysical kitsch, I referenced and mixed with my daily
consumption of vaste quantities of industrial synthetics* the greater my
darkness became.

Ten years later, I finally arrived to "Hell~".
I was diagnosed with terminal liver damage~ by my physician,
who suggested that I take a vacation, because I would probably
be dead in three to six months~. In that state of alcoholic psychosis~
and intellectual pride, as a self willed "ethical nihilist"
--all of my anarcho-philosophical, pseudo-religious and
quasi-scientific inquiries into the nature of "THIS~"--
the sum total of all of my thinking on Sucrose, came to "NADA".
Yet, bottle in hand*~, I was determined to figure Sucrose out.
Then my lights dimmed as I entered into a period of "post literacy",
of alcoholic amnesia~.

Thanks to one of the "old timers" in Alcoholics Anonymous,
who passed on to me, the keys to recovery, by suggesting that I
"get off the center of the universe", "turn my problem over"
and "stay away from the first drink, one day at a time",
"I came to believe in a power greater than myself " and the stories
of recovery in "Alcoholics Anonymous" will suffice to describe the
process of being reborn out of the darkness into the light of sobriety,
so there is no need to further elaborate here.

In recovery through the use of naturopathic medicine, macrobiotics,
and aseries of fasts my liver condition~ and a long list of other
symptoms~ disapeared within the first five years. But eventually I would
return to the "Junk food*" and in no time at all "THIS~" would come
back. By now it was becoming clear that Sucrose could possibly be that
white crysteline powder "stuff*", freely displayed on every restaurant
table. Eventhough I had read about my hypoglycemia~, in Adelle Davis
and other nutrition books, I still could not put two and two together.
Today there is a new conciousness and we hear people freely admit
"I'm a sugar addict".

There was a time when to claim addiction~ to
this "energy food*" was to incure the suggestion that there is need
of "mental health" professionals~.

Not untill I read the landmark book by William Dufty : "SUGAR BLUES",
did I really get to see what Sucrose is all about.
A milestone for free speech and free thought.

I was finally able to identify "THIS~".

"I am a Sucrose Addict" I wrote in my journal, but comming to realize
the full significance of that statement and out of denial took another
seven years of "half measures" and "social eating". Some half dozen
painfull slips later, I realized that I was "powerless~".

The revelation then came to try, "working the 12 steps". "Intuition"
told me that if it worked with my alcoholism it would work with
"THIS~". In '89 in Hawaii after "sharing" with another " junk food*
addict" like myself, I repaired to request permission to use an
adaptation of the 12 steps, for "Sucrose* Addicts Anonymous",
from A.A. Some time later the need to address other anti-nutrients* like caffine,
industrial salt, refined flour, synthetic sweeteners etc.
lead to use of the akronym from the vernacular,
"Junk Food* Anonymous".

Despite the dross of advertizing verbiage for Sucrose, there is a
durse of terms to describe a person who addictivly uses
anti-nutrients*, perhaps the term "nutritional anorexic" may suffice.

By miraculous grace I was informed of the existence of
"Overeaters Anonymous". When, one night I found myself binging on so
called "health food*" I called in to report that I was "...powerless
over food*". My O.A. contact encouraged me that I might also find other
members to bond with who also shared my experiences with regards to
the Sucrose.

I joined O.A. and put Sucrose on my bottom line as "trigger
food*",but was frustrated by the "no reference to specific foods"
clause. I wanted to scream Sucrose did "THIS~" to me,
especially, on those occassiones when, some newcommer, was drinking the
"stuff*" at a meeting. Nevertheless it was in O.A. that I got everything
I needed to "stay clean" for this last ten years.

Now, at times,

I'm questioned as to the need for still another
12 step program. Surely, some say there is already a sufficient
plethora of them. I now belong to a dozen myself. I've never heard of
anyone dying from an overdose of meetings. In reality however, is there
not just as much a need to specialize in this specific area.
Especially since the mediation and disinformation is so intense.

To grow, Just as, to use another example, "Cocaine Addicts Annonymous"
proceeded from "Narcotics Anonymous".

William Dufty, has in his book, likened Sucrose to cocaine addiction.

In my experince it is as "cunning baffling and powerful " as my
addiction to alcohol. In fact alcohol*,pop* and cigarettes* is loaded
with Sucrose.

The book, "The Hidden Addiction" by Phelps and Nourse, claims that
sucrose* is the root of almost all of the substance abuse addictions,
I have witnessed the progression, from caffeine to pharmaceuticals,
through the entire spectrum of anti-nutrient* inclusive.

I, however maintain, as I have expressed above that the root addiction
is media. Nevertheless they are inextricably entwined.

The "junk food" for the mind includes the "junk food*" for the body.
One sells the other. it's a symbiotic relationship.

Nevertheless the symptomatic dis-eases
attributable to sucrose*, ranging from heart disease, diabetes
and cancer, to tooth decay, chronic fatigue and candidas is long
and impressive enough, I think, to be given special attention.
Although, as I have mentioned before "Overeaters Anonymous"
to date, does the job by default.

In any case today we have a choice and to that end I remain your
"trusted servant" in recovery.


It only takes two to have a meeting.
Please send e-mail for meeting start-up kits.
Please submit any information of new meetings for posting in
the "A.N.A.*" newsletter.
Also we will post any stories of recovery.

Excerpt from "Media Free Times" :

"...IT HAS COME TO OUR ATTENTION, FROM VARIOUS GOV'T SOURCES, THAT THE SUCROSE CONTENT OF HONEY LABELED "PURE", MAYBE FROM 15-20%, BY SOME ESTIMATES, OR AS HIGH AS 40-50% BY OTHERS.THESE, ARE PERMISSABLE LEVELS UNDER LAW, WHICH DOES NOT ALLOW FOR DIRECT ADULTRATION, BUT DOES NOT PROHIBIT BEES FROM REWORKING SUCROSE INTO HONEY. WE WONDER, IF THE BEES WILL BE PAID FOR DAMAGES?... Another opinion expressed in the video "Sugar trap" was that, It would probably be more appropriate to use sucrose, that is an anti-nutrient*, as a renewable energy source and to converte it to Gasahol, to fuel our utilities and transportation needs and as an alternative to toxic nuclear and non-renewable fossil fuels. This it would appear, would be more siutable, than to malnourish our peoples. The consumption of Junk Food may be creating a generation of "reptilian brain", man-machine mutant clones ."





Did you know that the word "Sugar" as used by advertisers refers to the synthetic drug called "Sucrose."
