Alcohol Addiction, Drug Addiction and Eating Disorders Are Related
Many people don’t realize that substance abuse is often similar to having an eating disorder. Eating disorders are basically addictions, and in most cases, they can be treated successfully, just as any alcohol addiction or drug addiction would be.
Substance abuse of any kind means relying on something negative to fix a negative emotional problem or issue. For example, people might develop an addiction to opiates because they seek that high when they’re feeling overworked and stressed. Others might form an addiction to alcohol because they fear social situations and don’t know how to act around new people.
Slowly, these propensities for using an outside substance to gain control and more positive feelings leads to serious physical addiction, which in turn can lead to health and mental issues.
Those who have food addictions turn to fatty, high-calorie, sugary foods just as they would drugs or alcohol. Those who end up developing anorexia nervosa or bulimia are seeking control in a world where they feel out of control.
Eating disorders often develop because of social anxiety. Those who may already feel overweight and anxious about their appearance might end up overcompensating with a drastic diet. They will eat far less than is healthy and end up with anorexia, or they will accidentally binge, feel guilty and purge. This is known as bulimia.
