Comfort Eating

Comfort Eating

Sometimes people will turn to food as a means to comfort themselves. This is sometimes referred to as eating their emotions. Those individuals who achieve sobriety can be tempted to turn to food for solace. This is not such a good idea as it can lead to obesity and other health problem. It also often means that the individual is running away from their problems. Success in recovery occurs when people face challenges and overcome them.
