Heck yes! Not so much now but definitely been here before. Something that helped me was literally telling myself I will not eat at all costs before I had any drinks. The act of telling myself that before drinking seemed to helpe me stay committed to that. And sometimes that prior "self talk" was was enough to keep me from binging once I had a little buzz. Other things that have helped me are keeping veggies and fruit around. I know that's hard if you go out to a bar, but if everyone is going for late night food after, I've been known to order a fruit cup or steamed veggies. I have more control now and can avoid all food when I have a couple drinks with friends but I also don't drink more than 2 times a month or so, so it's less of an issue overall. Some people have had to cut out alcohol altogether.
