Anorexia and Alcohol... (Addiction)

Firstly, I am so thankful for this website.

I have been sober from alcohol for many weeks.

I have been going to the gym everyday, which helps with my anxiety.

It would appear that once giving up alcohol I have now gone back in to my primary addiction (I used alcohol to allow me to eat), Anorexia.

I have contacted my previous counsellor who stated as my Father paid 250 per session, private, she cannot see me on NHS - there is an 24 month waiting list...

I'm wondering if anyone else has suffered from Anorexia and used alcohol - what did you do?

I feel like I cannot eat unless suitably sedated...

I do not want to drink, and I haven't.

But the result is that if I'm not 'lucid' I cannot eat.

Thank you for any responses received x

P.S. (I've tried Doctors, Beat - a UK charity, and etc.)

Cassie, my heart goes out to you. Stay here and don't drink.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation sponsors a recovery and forum website over there in England. Maybe you could start with this?:

I know you said you tried this BEAT, but maybe try again?
