It suffices to say that ED's are a little more than addicting. And from what I've been reading around here, many of us have other compulsions as well. What I'm curious about, is how many of you have drug compulsions/addictions. I have had severe problems with cocaine in the past, as it completely eliminates appetite, or at least in my case. I still am a heavy pot smoker, as well. This isn't the whole idea, though. My main question is, do you think that having a certain addiction before the eating disorder can cause the development of one? Or vice versa? Is it another aspect of the OCD/addictive personality traits of eating disordered people?
I would love to have some other insight on this. This community has such diverse/interesting/thoughtful perspectives. :D
