It's great that you're almost completely recovered :) but it does take time to settle into "normal" eating habits. The fact that you're eating anything at lunchtime is a great success.

If you have trouble with binge drinking, I would recommend abstaining completely - because for me at least, limits go out of the window when I've had a couple of drinks. Try to distract yourself when...

I understand how you feel. I've had problems with binge eating too, and when my bulimia was at its worst I couldn't eat a meal without binging. I think there must be some psychological reason why...
