That is very helpful indeed - thank you very much - I am unsure now - but - if there are others interested in the situation for a seventy year old compulsive overeater who is now back from a longish period of excess eating although not out and out repeated bingeing - I am hopeful they will join or perhaps point me in the direction of a similar thread.
I marvel at how once - I seriously thought about beginning to get back to living the 12 step way on a daily basis the urges to eat between meals and - especially at night - simply vanished.
I have a long way to go yet - but feel some definite progress - recognising that out of control eating was only one symptom of my addiction(s)
I am not really able to post at length as I need my concentration elsewhere right now - but I shall be interested in any response from others - I am five and a half days - I think - I am losing count - abstinent with food.
