This is something that has increasingly got worse since I started recovery. Its like I try an item of food that I haven't had for years, like it, and go out and practically stockpile it. My spare bedroom is full of things like boxes of cereal, biscuits, chocolate spread etc because I have started eating these foods again and gone out and brought loads. I used to do this a bit before recovery - decide I was going to try an item of food and end up buying loads of it when 9 times out of 10 I never actually got round to eating the food - after a couple of months I would either throw it away or donate it to the food bank. At least now I am actually eating some of the food I buy, but I`m buying way too much of it and that's not normal is it? I never have and still don`t binge, so that's not the reason why I do it. My partner says I shouldn't do it as the shops are hardly going to run out, but I can`t help it.¨
What does this mean? I don`t mind doing it when I am actually buying it but afterwards when I see the amount I have accumulated it makes me feel bad, hence why I often get rid of it.
If you have any thoughts on any of this I would be interested to read what you think?
