I binge eat and have a problem with alcohol. They are similar, in that both in both cases I try to push away bad feelings about myself. The alcohol abuse follows certain rituals and times. The binge eating is much more direct - the moment I feel shamed in any way, (and it can be the most indirect, unbelievable way), I try and compensate with food.
