@SMcFall0215 you are completely valid in stating food can be like a drug. For many of us (myself included it would seem) eating food causes a chemical reaction in the brain that actually hits the same reward pathways as drugs or alcohol. In fact there's a medication called naltrexone that is used for alcohol and opiate addiction, and it recently became approved for weight loss (when combined with bupropion) because it helps manage cravings. As an addictions therapist it is both interesting and oh so frustrating to experience this struggle myself. Don't leave now, having peer support can be one of the most impactful parts of recovery! Additionally, I have found the book Life is Hard, Food is Easy to be very inspiring.
