With Alcoholism in the family he never thought it would happen to him....after all...he was the helper...the good kid.  He finally surrendered to the booze problem at the end of his first marriage and was a "good" recovering alcoholic, doing the right things but always a little distant.  He always felt as if something was missing.  As time went on his weight climbed, diets failed, feelings numbed, hope disolved and finally the light came on.  His family intervened and  insisted that he address his compulsive overeating and he did. He finally found the missing piece.
