You could try (I am currently doing this) making a list of ways to deal with stress. I was listening to a Janet Evanovich book yesterday where a character was listing ways to cope with stress: drugs, alcohol, donuts, sex, fried chicken, and I thought I need a list! My personal list starts with hers but goes on to playing with dogs, playing with children, walking, hiking, singing, playing guitar, meditation, praying, reading entertainment only books, learning something new etc. I think you need to make your own list, things that have worked and things to try, put it where you can see it, and try some thing other than eating when dealing with stress. At least, that's what I plan to do with my list. I'm aiming for 100 things on it!
