Take it from an purger- you do NOT want to go down that road. Your body is worth so much more than that abuse. Mentally it took me FOREVER to get out of that mindset. Personally I choose to starve myself and throw up a ton. I didn't listen when people told me it was going to screw my teeth up and my throat. Luckily my throat is fine, but at the age of 24 I have had over 15,000 of dental work done, my mouth constantly tastes like metal (I can't afford to get the regular fillings because I wore down so much enamel I had a cavity between every tooth.) And fillings only last so long. I have had two root canals and various other issues. I will be lucky if I can maintain the bits of teeth I have left to not be in dentures before I am 40.
I understand wanting control, wanting to be skinny at no cost. **** I even considered doing illegal drugs or trying to catch mono just to lose weight. It took me SO long to get over what I did to myself. yes I realize now it was more of a coping mechanism as, I weighed about 150 when I started doing all this. It took YEARS for me to be able to be around certain things, I still have triggers that are hard. just please do not go down this road.
You are worth So So SO much more. I promise you that whenever I had friends asking me how I was losing weight I just wanted to cry because I would rather all my friends be overweight and semi healthy then to hate themselves, have the total obsession and pain of an eating disorder. please please PLEASE do not go down this road.

"Upset of electrolyte and mineral balances. Sodium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus are
electrolytes and minerals that are present in very specific amounts necessary for proper functioning of
the nerves and muscles, including those of the colon and heart. Upsetting this delicate balance can
cause improper functioning of these vital organs.
Severe dehydration may cause tremors, weakness, blurry vision, fainting, kidney damage, and, in
extreme cases, death. Dehydration often requires medical treatment.
Laxative dependency occurs when the colon stops reacting to usual doses of laxatives so that larger
and larger amounts of laxatives may be needed to produce bowel movements.
Internal organ damage may result, including stretched or “lazy” colon, colon infection, Irritable
Bowel Syndrome, and, rarely, liver damage. Chronic laxative abuse may contribute to risk of colon
