In Reply to: Anybody here trying to stop using sugar as a drug? posted by Anne on December 28, 1999 at 16:36:22:

: Hi, I am a much recovered E.D. person (was in in-patient for anorexia 5 years ago now, have been weight stable since then, w. binging (w. no purging) declining in those years). However, I still use sugar to medicate away my feelings almost daily (Xmas was pretty scary); I feel like sthg. is missing if I don't have chocolate, cookies, etc. in my day, sometimes several times. Today, I haven't ingested any sweets yet (trying to do this mostly for my skin & to help w. my depression), but a lot of feelings are rattling around in here, that are making me feel restless & upset. I've hit similar bottoms before, dealt w. this situation, when I stopped other bad habits, but I'm having a bit of an emotional day today. Can anyone else relate??? I guess you could call this "later phase" recovery from an E.D., or something like that, not life-threatening, I acknowledge, but fraught with its own challenge & pain. Hopefully I'll find someone I can connect with here.

I self-medicate with sugar.
I try not to do this, but I do have my times.
Christmas goodies set me back off-track.
When the sweet breads and pie is gone it will be easier. Certian things, like ice cream I can avoid, but certain others make me crazy...it makes me bloated too, and puffy.
I hate it.
