of course, lots of people are the same way.
you CAN stop eating... but it's hard.
a couple of things are happening; your "full" signals (leptin is the chemical that helps you know when you are full) may be out of whack due to medical reasons, certain foods (like artificial sweeteners, they say), or just eating too fast. you might want to get that checked out if you literally feel like you aren't ever getting that feeling of being full...
much more likely is that it is emotional eating, and you are just seeking the sensation of food to "fill up" an empty-feeling place inside you. this is totally normal! in fact, sadly, it seems to sort of be the human condition... what we need to learn is to fill that with other things... activities, calling a friend or family member, volunteering our time to help others, etc.
best of luck to you on this journey!
