Addicted to gagging?(posted in another section on this site) - November 14th 2009, 06:45 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of eating disorders, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Sorry for cross posting I honestly didn't know were to put it last night. So the other one is in the addictive behavers you can close one of them if you need to. Sorry if cross posting against the rules anyway back to the post.

I have no clue if this is in the right post or not or weather it should be in the Ed section if it should feel free to move it. Anyways when ever I brush my teeth, I have an impulse that I have to shove my toothbrush down my thaot and I gag and do it like 2-3 times. I have no clue how to make this stop. I mean I did stop it when I went to camp but that's just because it was camp.

How do I stop?


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Hello! I trashed the thread that was originally in Addictive Behaviors (because it was the one with no replies) and moved this one on over from Eating Disorders to Addictive Behaviors. I'm going to leave it here until I understand what's going on a little better, and then if we think it goes better in Eating Disorders, we can move it back there. [:

What are your intentions, exactly? Are you WANTING to make yourself throw up, or are you just gagging because you enjoy the feeling of it? Honestly, this is an addictive behavior that could end up being very harmful to you. With that in mind, the only way you're going to be able to stop is sheer will power. Perhaps you could brush your teeth at a time you know others in your family will be around/near? And that might keep you from doing this? Hmm. I'll keep brainstorming. (:

That's the thing I have no effing I dea why I do it. I just do. I can't tell you what I'm thinking when I do it. or why I feel the need to do it. all I know is that I do it. and if this helps any better I also have ed tendencies as in the looking in the mirror seeing fat and want to be a certant weight that is low. plus I've stoped eating a lot latley I barley eat anything during the day. So I do know if this info helps or not.

Can anyone help in anyway? It's getting worse I swear. Once I start it's like I can't stop and have to force myself to.
