I'm very sorry this has become a problem for you. Substituting food for alcohol and drugs is, unfortunately, not that uncommon. Have you considered trying an overeaters anonymous group? I know they have a pretty good track record of helping people learn to stop binge eating. I know quite a few women who have gotten control of terrible binge eating problems, lost weight and been able to maintain a healthy weight.
Good luck to you.

> hi. i have overcome a few addictions to substances and to relationships. cigarettes, alcohol, marijuana and an abusive relationship which very much was addictive. i did all this partly on my own, partly through therapy and some help from support groups.
> this was all about 1 1/2 years ago, ive been abstinent since then.
> however, i have gained a bunch of weight and binge eat almost every single day. my therapist tells me that he thinks its another addiction and i am self soothing w food. he is right.
> im continuing to learn to deal w feelings. thats underneath all of this. i am scared though. my doctor (regular doc) told me i have really bad cholesterol and need to lose weight...and i have been binging almost daily. i am scared i wont get this under control or it will be too late when i do.
