It doesn't take a WHOLE childhood to be terrible, but a couple of LASTING events can really leave scars.
I've probably told you about my LOVE of COKE, and that came from a HAPPY memory, because my father would reward me and my brother by taking us into the tavern with him after he got his "business" done in town, and we'd get a COKE and chips for "being good." He'd talk to the local men, and laugh and someone would give me quarters to play the JUKEBOX and it would be air-conditioned in there in the hot summer and "so grown-up".
I drank COKE as my COMFORT food for years, once I was an adult and could buy it for myself. I know that it connects me to my father, and a wonderful time BUT, it isn't healthy and I gave up drinking it last year.
SO, not all COMFORT food comes from just BAD memories.
