People can become addicted to food, or at least to eating. It can be difficult to change this habit because food can’t be completely eliminated (as can be done for cigarettes, alcohol, or other drugs). (Bost, Brent W., MD, FACOG. Hurried Woman Syndrome. NY: Vantage Press, 2001, pp 90-91)

It can be a huge challenge to help people who are addicted to food or alcohol overcome a sense of despair when they lose the highs associated with the addictive behaviors. (Woodman, Marion. Addiction to Perfection: Toronto, Canada: Inner City Books, 1982, pp 24-30)
