I'm now dealing with a food addiction (I've an addictive personality), I started doing drugs and drinking alcohol at such an early age. I have noticed that right after I'm recovered from an addiction I start getting addicted to something else. I tend to have poor self control with the things that I like. I guess it's just part of me. I tend to binge eat most Saturday, next day I feel guilty. Luckily I don't gain weight easily, I do need to practically eat a lot bread, chocolate, drink sodas and eat a load of carbs in order to gain weight. And that is exactly what happened last year, as a result I gained weight. I'm now trying to lose it, but my hormones and anxiety issues don't help There is a local group targeted at people like me, but it didn't seem like a friendly place. It's like AA, but for food addicts. I didn't like the fact there is so much drama there... is nothing like the AA for alcoholics or drug addicts... people in this one are so rude and swear a lot. Plus other unpleasant behaviors, in short I don't feel safe there. I have managed to control my food addiction a lot this week, I'm actually proud and amazed. I'm hoping next week is as good or better Sometimes I feel so lonely when I think about my food addiction. I guess I creaed this post to see if there is someone here with the same issue as me. I'd love to talk about it.
