Hand in Hand Through the Holidays  - Bridget (Novations Editor)
Excerpt fromDecember's Novations

Just before Halloween, many of us OAers started preparing ourselves for the upcoming holidays and all the food that comes with them. The holiday season brings excitement, nostalgic traditions and a plethora of social activities that tend to revolve around food consumption. For those who battle compulsive eating, the added stress of the holidays and abundance of food can trigger symptoms from overeating, to purging and restricting. "This can lead to embarrassment, guilt, depression and unwanted pounds.

A Time to Rejoice - Nov 1982 Lifeline
Excerpt from December's Novations

Chanukah will soon be celebrated by the Jews and, shortly after, the Christians will celebrate Christmas. At no other time are the similarities of our religions more evident than during this holiday season..

How can I carry the message? In the meetings I go to, we often say that the greatest form of service is abstinence. When I abstain from compulsive eating and attend meetings - newcomers and struggling members can see that the program really does work.
