Do you have a compulsive habit or addiction that is ruining your relationship? Is your spouse or partner threatening to leave you? Is your behavior affecting you at work? Even if you are in a Twelve Step program, fighting off cravings is still a difficult job.

Many people will suggest that you "just say NO." However, that doesn't work permanently.
Do you consider yourself to be an emotional eater? Do you often emotionally overeat because of your feelings of anxiety and frustration about your relationship? Or, do you feel so frustrated because you keep meeting and dating the "wrong men" and you turn to food for comfort because of this?
Does it ever feel like your urge to binge is so powerful it truly has a life of its own and that no matter how much you know you want to stop binging it just seems to keep happening?

Breaking free from emotional eating is more attainable than most of us first believe. I once walked out of a therapist’s office, never to return after I asked him, “Is it really possible to heal this?”. At the time I was a stress eater. As a single mom, I had a lot of stress and this equated to a lot of overeating. He said, “Yes, Laurel, it is possible.” I didn’t believe him and turned my back on getting help. I suffered needlessly mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically for years after as a result.
You hear it all the time; “I am being good this year and not going to have xyz bad foods, so I don’t gain any weight.” This is the time of year when people join Weight Watchers and go on diets, so they can stay in control during the holidays. For some it works, and that holds out hope for everyone else. For the majority it not only does not keep them in control; the guilt, deprivation and old familiar patterns lead to giving up on the idea and then really over indulging since they blew it anyway. By the time New Year’s rolls around, they have put on nearly 10 pounds – twice the average holiday weight gain. Have you ever done this or know people who have? What happens in January when the holidays are over? Does this process get repeated?
