    Is purging disorder a form of addiction? Will power alone is not working well. I think I need help.

    Thank you so much in advance for your responses, it is rare for me to reach out like this.

    If you are purging then yes you have a problem it is for some a coping mechanism not a good one
    You need to talk to you doctor get a referal to a therapist

    It could be a problem. If you feel like the need of purging more often and now its frequent habit yes its an issue.

    Yes. In fact, I would argue that most eating disorders are forms of addictions or anxiety. I think it would be fair to say that. Purging can definitely become an addiction. And if you have a purging disorder, I encourage you to seek treatment.
