I can relate! Oh can I ever! I just think I have an addictive personality (cliche saying perhaps, but nevertheless...) and I do it with food and I do it with alcohol. It's so much easier for me to just not drink, than to try to drink just 1 or 2. As many of you above me have said, it turns into 3, sometimes more. Then, to make it worse, I get the "drunkies" or at least it turns into an excuse to eat whatever I want! Thinking, gee, I've already drank all these calories, what's stopping for pizza/fast food/ice cream etc. going to do? It's a vicious cycle and I'm still learning. I find it best if I only drink around others, and also when I know I will be with people all night through to the next morning - it keeps me in check because I would get embarrassed to binge in front others like I can when I'm alone. That's why I really like it when my boyfriend stays over! It's when I go out drinking and wind up home alone later that night that the trouble really sets in. Oy! So I just try to a) not drink or b) drink only socially. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't! Lately it's been working
