I do agree, based on my personal experiences... then again, I've never taken drugs so I can't personally compare the two, but when I've struggled with compulsive overeating/bingeing, I felt addicted... I felt out of control, I was willing to go to great lenghts to get something, I thought about it obsessively, when I woke up, before I went to sleep...

I am turned off by the last comment, that it is a necessary addiction for all of us to have - I don't know if it's just my interpretation but it seems to belittle the entire problem and its seriousness.

Great article, thanks for posting!
