I do the very same thing and I let it get way out of control.
I use food to comfort myself when I am sad, to entertain myself when I am bored, to keep me company when I am lonely and to celebrate when I am happy.
I am trying to adopt new behaviors such as crying when I am sad, finding something interesting to do when I am bored, spend time with my husband, friends, 3fcs, or my kitties when I am lonely and buy myself flowers when I want to celebrate. If I do use food for a feeling, I am trying to find foods that I can have on my WW program.
It isn't easy to change my behavior after so many years, but I try to be more aware of why I am eating in addition to what I eat.
Like you, I find it to be very frustrating!
