I started when I was 16 I am now going to be 30. What makes you pretty in the beginning will make you ugly in the end. Your hair will fall out. You will develope skin disorders(acne, seborrhea) from hydration problems. And the elasticity of your skin will diminish. I have stomach problems and emotional problems and have been in and out of therapy for years. I am constantly in dept due to the binging. And through years of lying and deception I am now a person who I hate. The cycle never ends and you can't win. Try O.A. alot of people have sucess that way. good luck! P.S It will destroy who you were meant to be if it doesn't kill you.
