That awkward moment when you're one of those people who purges with a toothbrush...


That is the only way I can purge, my finger is too short and it is disgusting

This is super important !! Thank you for posting this, as someone who used to purge, it really saddens me to see such harmful "tips" floating around. Thank you so much <3

think this is fantastic at the end of the day people are going to do it so its about making it as safe as possible I'm a medical professional so i should no better but iv had ED since i was in my teens and still stuggle but if you can limit some risks thats always important this information does not cause people to purge it helps protect those who already do it and this could save someone so the information being out there is so vital but you will always have people trying to blame information as encouragement but they are idiots

Thank you so much for these tips, I made this a bookmark on my browser just in case ;)

I am forced to eat very spicy (in my opinion) fried chicken from kfc with my family tomorrow and also some french fries, I'm gonna work it off since I'm so scared to purge it..

I just get so sick of thinking about all the fat that's in the chicken skin but they'll get suspicious if I peel the skin off.

Does anybody have any tips for how to get rid or hide burns on the fingers from stomach acid? It looks bad and I am afraid of being caught.

I like everything on your list except "avoid soda". I actually use sugar free soda to help me purge sometimes so to me it's super helpful. What was the reason you put it on your list? I'm just curious and wanted to know if there are any bad side effects to using soda, which I dont think there are?

I use oversized vinyl gloves to prevent bloody knuckles. Not only do they protect my knuckles, the tips of the gloves facilitate an easier gag to purge. Highly recommend to help with harm reduction. Plus, your hands won't smell afterward.

Why should you stop if your heart flutters/palpitates? I get palpitations pretty much all day everyday (especially when I purge), what does it mean if it happens while I purge? Like why is it bad? What can happen if i don't stop when I get them? I usually never let them stop me.

the acidity wears out your esophagus, mouth, and teeth. Best to have water. Water will do the trick if it's sipped along and along during a binge.
