Cravings Fort Lauderdale FL

Binging usually starts with a craving. We want something we really know is not good for us, so we decide not to have it—not because we don’t want it, but because we feel we shouldn’t. This leads to a feeling of deprivation which can, and usually does, lead to binging and guilt, with vows to never do it again.

Does this sound a little familiar?

If you have a craving for something it’s usually because you associate that something with a good feeling. This feeling could be purely sensual — taste, smell, texture or it could be a memory. For example, I had a friend who could not shake the coffee habit. She switched to decaf and beat the caffeine addiction and stopped drinking coffee during the day, but she still craved her morning coffee. I met her at a café one morning to discuss this problem.
