i broke my fast today
i really didn't want to, but i got scared
i read a few fasting books and they all say (i know it myself, but was hoping that even though it's not recommended, it's still allowed) that you cannot be taking any drugs during a fast at all. they say that people react to drugs much stronger, sometimes convultions and death.
and i'm on methadone, a lot of it. and i also relapse occasionally, let's be honest here.
so i got scared. i didn't want to breask the fast, i was doing so good and it wasn't that hard!!
but i was starting to get sick (dopesick) and had to take my meth, and after reading that i was literally scared
so i'm eating
now i'm thinking of doing maybe a few 10-day fasts, not sure how that will help with the weight though
but i don't know who to ask about fasting and methadone
the books that i read are from 70-80 years ago, but i imagine that nothing changed
still, if there was a fasting doctor - i'd love to ask
but everyone is so opposed to fasting these days
you know what kills me the most?
the people opposed to it know nothing about it
they're so scared to miss a meal, it's almost funny
i was told that i will starve to death (hahaha, my fat will keep me going for a few years, what are they talking about?), that i will do horrible damage to my body, that i shouldn't do it, that it's unheard of to be able to live without food for so long
and no matter how much i say that it's actually very beneficial for many health conditions, and that a person with my amount of fat can go at least 3 months before starving
they told me that my body will start eating its own meat, and blah blah
what i don't get is, are people that ignorant? i mean, use a little logic
first of all, what is fat? calories stored for future use, in case there's no food, like the camel's bumps or whatever you call them
and if a person is on a diet, then he tries to eat less calories than he burns. and how is that process any different from fasting? why doesn't the body eat the muscles then? if it knows what to eat when dieting, then why would it forget and eat itself when fasting
ignorance kills me, if you don't know something - be quiet, it's ok to not know something
it always amused me how opposed people are to fasting. i'm very interested to understand where it's coming from. after all, i'm not making them do it, right? so what is it? jealousy that i can do it and they can't? i mean, people get almost mad at me, it's such a strong reaction
where is it coming from?
what do you think?
