Psychological addictions can be just as power - often more powerful - than physical addictions. Also, you forgot tobacco. And crack. So yeah, food addiction is a very real thing, and it's victims need both behavioral and drug-based therapies to beat it.
>>35581512 Drug based therapies to overcome their need to shove shit down their throats. Your mentality is part of the problem - as long as you keep coddling these weak minded souls they will never learn to man the fuck up and get their acts together which all they really need to do.
I've been addicted to alcohol and heroin. I'm here to tell you that it can be beat. (And alcohol was the harder of the two.) Food addiction can be just as bad. Fatties are mentally weak. But so are drug addicts. If we had strong mentalities, we wouldn't have sought an "escape" through drugs in the first place. Food is also an escape for people. Food is almost a drug. It's addicts deserve support and sympathy, not condemnation and ridicule. If people could help me out of my deepest depths of addiction with heroin, then we can do the same for the victims of food addiction.
>>35581641 Congrats on beating it. Few people do. You cannot compare heroin withdrawal to food addiction, please dont. Thats insulting to those who suffer with it. I never said it can't be beat. Its just not the same.
>>35581348 Then why don't they just get fatties addicted to psychedelics and stimulants that kill appetite and pretty much destroy their weight so they can just overcome drug addiction instead of obesity is so hard?
>>35581541 Benzo withdrawal is the only one that can actually kill you
Alcohol and heroin withdrawal will make you feel like you're about to die every second that you're going through it but it won't whereas benzos will
It's very clear that your knowledge of substance abuse is non existent
You should stop posting because you're spreading lies and misinformation and many of our younger posters and lurkers don't know to be on the lookout for bullshit at all times so they end up getting suckered by your lies
>>35581541 Sugary, high calorie foods activate the same reward pathways in the brain that opiates do. They can be just as addictive. Porn is the same. Keep burying your head in the sand while the average young males become more overweight and more sexually disfunctional as time goes on.
>>35583147 Alcohol withdrawal can kill you - pls look up delirium tremens. So can heroin withdrawal. I work in the medical field and this is not the same as "food addiction". Obese people need to get a grip and stop eating thats it.
>>35583175 If you've ever had cocaine or an opiate you will know that this is bullshit. The researchers who published this probably experienced it either. Go and snort some coke and tell me a fucking coke gives you the same high, total bullshit.
>>35581457 You've obviously never met someone who smokes weed. Those fuckers claim every single day they aren't addicted yet will fuck their lives over every step of the way to keep their stupid addiction.
>>35584406 They have no ambition anyway. Guns dont kill people,people kill people. The weed is just the excuse, they are lazy fuckers who wont amke anything of their lives anyway. Coddling them will not help. Weed is not addicitve
>>35584414 Oh so all problems are the same then? The fat lazy fuck who eats shit all day has the same difficulties as the kid who was born with cerebral palsy?
Dont kid yourself dude. Some people were born with all the potential they just chose to screw up everyday. Some people were born with no chance in life, they didnt get to choose and by comparing them you are insulting those who didnt choose to suffer.
