    I think it depends on the person.. When I'm unhappy, I tend to not eat as much. When I do, I splurge on a few pieces of chocolate/that's it. I think habitually, as a kid, I always ate healthy.. so when feeling like crap, overeating/eating unhealthy just makes me want to gag.

    Growing up, there was a saying in my house, "Not eating much huh? In love?" Even when people are in love, they also tend not to eat as much.

    Either way, the only time in which I do eat a bit more than usual is when I'm studying my ass off/the weather's cold outside (this part biologically makes sense- since body fat storage is needed as a blanket for cold weather protection).

    Well, there's always jolly and fat being associated, so people obviously see a connection...

    For me it's less just food and more a matter of when I need it. Eating when I'm hungry is a great relief and typically puts me in a good mood, but I'll get cranky if I have to eat when I'm not hungry.

    I remember the best meal in my life. It was at a Steak n' Shake about two years ago. I hadn't had the chance to eat much substantial for about a week and I'd been sick. I was pretty damn happy after that.

    I have no idea. It doesn't make any sense to me either.

    I mean, food can make me happy if I'm in the mood to eat, or I'm hungry. But if I feel nauseous, tense, or distracted, it can make me feel sick. The type of food offered, and the type I'm in the mood for makes a big difference as well.

    So, how food makes me feel depends on several variables.

    I read that people who fast, especially anorexics tend to get hooked on the endorphrins/hormones that are released while the body is hungry. It's just another way of altering brain chemistry.

    Same with bulimics, with yaking. (And food eating)

    They both might have started for the same reason, but I think they might continue because of the addiction, unbeknownst to them.

    Putting something in your mouth mimics putting something in your soul a.k.a the big, aching, void.

    To me it looks like that more S and F you have you are more likely to think/feel this way. But I could be wrong.

    For example: my mother asks me

    She "Do you want ice cream"

    Me: "No I don't"

    She(confused):"Why don't you want to be happy?"

    Me:About what you are talking about?

    If you ask me this are probably the remains of tribal sociaty. We could even say society before 20. century.

    In my life I have admited few times to some people that I don't create this link and every time my words created same kind of shock?

    I am aware that by starting this thread I look like someone who is looking for attention.
    So if someone thinks that. I can only say that I am really fuc*** up as the thread suggests.


    So, why people link food and happiness?
    I think it has to do with the way food was used in our childhood.
    I have a friend who broke her leg when she was young.
    Her father took her out for ice cream every day to make her feel better.
    She says that behavior set a bad precedent in her life because she later used food to comfort herself and had trouble with her weight.

    Antisocial One:

    You appear to be a remarkably curious guy. How is it that you managed to live long enough to.. well how old are you?
    It seems so odd to me because a great many of the questions you ask are very basic... A lot of these things kind of just explain themselves if you pay even scant attention to anything.
    I mean is this voracious learning a newfound personality manifestation?

    Its fucking weird... I almost don't believe you're a genuine character -- every conception I have as to why you would be how you are seems to contradict itself.
