Letting Go

Participants discuss the moment of awakening to the realisation that they had a problem with their relationship to food and their first steps on their road to recovery from their eating disorder. The role of friends and family in this process and the triggers which led them to this critical turning point in their understanding of their illness are discussed. Participants talk about finding the courage to "let go" of their eating disorder and seek help for their problem.
