It is said that eating distress is an addiction.
I beg to differ. Granted, when the urges used to hit, I felt that I couldn't control it, and that I just
had to get on with it, and to hell with the consequences - maybe, in essence, that's the same thing.
A behaviour can't be an addiction, can it? Now I believe so, as everyone
has an addiction of sorts, some healthier than others.
If it is not an addiction then what is it? A compulsion yes, most definitely
- but not an addiction. Me, an addict? Hell no!
