Eating disorders are some of the most difficult mental illnesses to treat simply because those in recovery can not avoide their triggers. Alcoholics can avoide drink, drug addicts can find places free of narcotics but everyone has to eat. With so much food available at the holidays, that can make recovering from an eating disorder very difficult. With that in mind, The counsellors at Life Works have some simple tips that can help people suffering from an ED get through the holidays safely and happily. While these are not a guarantee of success, following these 10 steps will give you the edge you need to stay in recovery and enjoy the holidays.
