    I agree with this one. Don’t know if I’m really addicted to food, but at least in stress circumstances I tend to eat a lot. During Christmas being alone depressed me… free days, friends are mostly busy with they’re family issues, hence how can I keep myself busy? I mostly watch TV and eat… eat whatever I feel like at that very moment. Mostly not really healthy stuff and mostly just too much!
    It’s not too bad for a couple of days, but it keeps the danger to stick and proceed. I talked to a life coach… (Your24hCoach) might help some others with the same issue. Finally just don’t feel too depressed just because it’s Christmas time and you’re supposed to celebrate it in a family. Like the articles says there are a lot of people spending the holidays alone. Enjoy the alone time or just take it like a normal day in the year. Don’t make it a stressful time! Good luck!
