Social media has enabled people to find others like them easier than ever before. And, when your affliction is something you’ve kept hidden for many, many years, it can be very comforting to know that there are other people who are suffering  just like you.

Admitting you love fruitcake is the first step to recovery.


Just saying the words aloud helps to reduce the hold fruitcake has on you.

Sometimes it is hard to let go.

Along the way, it is natural to get defensive. That will pass.

The pain will subside, over time.

The day will come when you’ll notice that you’ve stopped looking for fruitcake, or even thinking about it. Then will you truly have your life back.
