Don’t apologise, it’s an illness. Have you spoke to any professionals?

Hey scorching. I have had help in the past but it seemed under control generally. Just this week is pants.

I’ve had similar issues in the past, long time ago. Has anything in particular triggered it for you lately?

I’ve been there OP and relapses are part of recovery. Where are you at right now? Could you pick something you’re craving to eat and tell yourself you’re going to enjoy it guilt free (even if it feels “greedy”) and try to stop afterwards? Removing guilt from the situation works for me.

Or if you’re past that and unable to stop tonight, accept that it is part of your recovery journey and that tomorrow is a new day - be kind to yourself flowers

What triggered your relapse? My triggers are boredom and stress.

Sorry you're having a relapse. flowers It sucks. Try not to beat yourself up about it. You're not a bad person for relapsing - it happens. I've thought several times I've beaten it for good, and yet it's crept up again. If you can tell what's caused the relapse, can you try to focus on the issue? Do damage limitation while the relapse lasts?
