I am a 24 straight male who has been going through bulimia episodes since 18. I usually binge and purge once a day, and just makes me feel depressed all of the time. Any advice on how to stop? I really enjoy working out, but I feel like bulimia is really holding me back in attaining healthy fitness goals. I am ready to quit this and move on with my life.

too vague of a question. if you aren't specific people will just scroll past your question. you need to tell us your weight before and after doing that. your current mood while doing it, ie. do you hate your self? any specific traits you're thinking about while doing that? were you bored? is it a systematic habit? did you learn this from anyone?

can you think of any alternatives to do when you hate your self? to avoid destructive behaviors you can mimic them without actually doing them. for example for someone who wants to cut their arm they can paint their arm red instead.

I wouldn't say that I hate myself at all. It is more like an addiction to food and desire to binge eat once I start eating bad food. I can usually go along pretty well until I eat something unhealthy which is a tipping point to make me start binge, and I just feel like a have to purge after I binge. I am usually around 175 at 5'10, I dont really weigh myself too often because I dont change in weight that much because of how often I workout that usually balances out the unhealthy eating. Just feels like I have plateaued in my lifting numbers and running since I binge on unhealthy food then purge.

Usually an addiction signifies some sort of imbalance/unhappiness/need in some aspect of your life. Sounds a bit hokey, but I've always found it to be true.

How's your life? And be honest, don't just blithely say "ok". You binge and purge. There's something wrong somewhere and your subconscious is trying to cope.

Well I do feel like I have depression which makes me bitter towards life in general right now. I don't do well with making new friends or finding a girlfriend. I am working part time before going back to grad school, so I feel like I'm working towards something, but I just feel like I'm being held back by the bulimia which fuels my depression. I want a better attitude towards life and I think I can reach it once I stop doing this.

Look for another addiction rather than this, makes your teeth fall out man.
