yes i was afraid you would say that! I hoped there was another answer other than allowing the urge….i try to avoid them!! Life is great when i dont have the urge…..which is most of the time. But when i do…… every 3-4 weeks its as if i am mind-controlled, brain-washed and/or taken over by aliens. It doesnt matter what i have told myself ahead of time…in that moment….a binge is utopia….is it possible because i have been doing this cycle for literally 40 years my brain has been hardwired and cannot be altered….much like someone that is addicted to herion? Thank u.
