Reason: Locked due to reference to suicide. Please call the suicide hotlines or get help immediately if you are still having these thoughts. See hotline info here: http://caloriecount.about.com/eating-disorders-health-resources-info-thread-ft119943#6
Its hard to stop a habit thats for sure and I have definitely felt the way you have. Sometimes I feel like "whats the point for anything?" I've been realizing i need a distraction or a hobby that will make me feel like i have a purpose again. Getting a job might be good for you because it gives you something to do and think about. I've been struggling with various symptoms of EDs. One thing i've been doing lately is chewing and spitting which I know is not a good thing but if your wanting to not purge but still binge this might be an interim tactic to stopping the binge because then your not intaking the calories and stuff of what your eating. I'm not saying its a good plan but it might help you stop the binging.
Please don't hate yourself. you are worth it no matter how you feel. We just have to rediscover the happiness...it could be as simple as a flower-focus on its beauty and remember the beauty in the world : ) be strong
Chewing and spitting does not eliminate the calories and leaves you without most of the nutrition. Digestion starts in the mouth with the saliva breaking down simple sugars and continues after you swallow in the various parts of the intestine. Chewing and spitting is considered to be disordered eating and frequently leads to more serious conditions, please do not start, get some help.

usually we over eat because our lives are so uncontrollable that we need someting to hang on to, something we know we can control. Most of the time that's eating...trust me i had this problem before, you feel sad you whip out the doritos then all of a sudden you're craving a pop tart. I used to get uncontrollable urges to eat really unhealthy snacks, i used to have almost two lunches. so here's what you do...don't stop all at once. over eating is like running ( i know weird comparison) you have to take it in steps... on the first craving eat but don't over do it. Only go for the chips, if you start to crave something else after that DON'T eat it. Try drinking some water, after i cut soda from my diet i found i had a lot less of a want for junk food. and if you're ever depressed don't turn to food to help you (it clearly only hurts) turn to something more soohting like music, writing, even talking with a friend. I started running, it helps relax your mind, don't like running? try whatever you feel would block the world out for a while..ha i know this is long but it'a a big topic with me too hope it helps!!!
i've been in your shoes before.
i had suffered from an eating disorder (anorexia) for around 8 months, and when i finally stopped i began to binge, put on 20 lbs in weeks and took an entire bottle of ibuprophen as a suicide attempt.
let me tell you, it's not a smart thing to do. the most embarassing moment i've ever experienced was that day, when i had to tell a social worker i tried to end my life because i felt too fat to live.
is your weight really worth your life? no, it's not. if you ever feel like you're going to kill yourself, go to the hospital immediately.
