I have a binge eating disorder. I feel like my body and my brain are not on the same page. My body is saying, “Stop, I’m full.” However, my brain is always screaming out for more food.
For me, binge eating is a compulsion that seems impossible to control. That’s why I started attending a Celebrate Recovery group. Celebrate recovery is a 12-step program that helps people overcome their addictions and compulsions.
I have tried to stop binge eating numerous times in the past, but I always failed. I admit I have become powerless over my compulsion and I need help (step 1).
