Ai ai ai. I enjoy drinking alcohol but it's a major trigger in my bingeing and purging....I'm at the stage in my recovery that if I'm not going out and having a drink I'm confident that I won't binge, that I'll eat well and look after myself.
But otherwise.........take yesterday, I ate okay, met a friend for drinks and walking home, reminded myself that I wasn't hungry and that I didn't want/need to binge. But I did want a snack (guess that was the alcohol making me peckish). All i had in that was safe was some carrots, so had those and then.........ahhhh, trigger and before I know it I'm dialling up a flipping pizza company and on and on.
I'm not going to beat myself up about it. Had the brainwave this morning that what I could do is eat my supper just before I go out rather than a few hours. Has anyone else got any cool suggestions?
I could stop drinking completely but I don't want to....but I will if I HAVE to in order to manage bingeing and purging. I just rather not!
