    Why do I do this to myself?

    Having to spend a good majority of the morning in the toilet isn't fun but I can't quit

    Something I am very ashamed of

    and embarrassed to tell anyone about. I have grown addicted over the last few months. I take too many fiber doses and laxatives in fear of being fat. I felt this was the more natural way to do it but now I am just stuck and very embarrassed to tell anyone that I have a problem.
