A bell alone can still ring.
Binge eating for Christmas companionship
People who binge eat often isolate. Was that you this Christmas? Were you alone? Did you go into a cave and wait for Christmas to pass by? Did you hope for phone calls and invitations that didn’t come? Did you binge eat and watch TV?
It was worse this year because of Covid. You couldn't go to a movie by yourself. You couldn’t go to an in-person OA meeting or a 12 step marathon to be with people, even if you didn’t know them.
Going to a seminar or workshop so you could be with people celebrating in a way that blended with the workshop theme was too risky this year.
