I've learned to "radically correct" myself when I see a binge moment turning into a binge day.
About a year ago I was having a rough day. Since I had already messed up that morning, I figured that buying a pint of Haagen Daz afte lunch wouldn't really matter. Well, I was driving home after getting the ice cream, and I realized that continuing the screw up was NOT the way to go, so I just took the unopened pint and threw it out the car window. I don't know where it landed, if it hit anyone/thing or what. I didn't care! I just winged it out and didn't look back. I regained controll and actually felt good about it (but felt stupid about wasting four bucks).
So - now I'm more controlled (and less wasteful) in my radical correcting, but I still do have to get in my own face, or so to speak, and actually yell at myself to back down sometimes, stop the madness, etc. It's a learned habit - I had to practice turning the tide. It's almost a physical effort, pulling yourself away from a continued binge, but it can be done. And it can be done without throwing stuff out of your car window!
