Binging 101

Binging can happen anytime anywhere! At work lunches where everyone’s chattering away or even when there are depressing thoughts filling your head space; one may take a snack break and return with their entire paycheck invested into donuts instead – only satisfied once they’ve scarfed down every single pastry in sight!
