Sounds like you have a food addiction. You will probably need professional help to overcome it. I have never had a problem with food but have been addicted to other substances in the past so I know what you are going through. It's not just a matter of willpower and self control to give up an addiction. You need to find a support group, people in the same situation as you. Support groups work if you really want to stop. It helps to know that there are others that are going through the same things and understand. Battling an addiction requires a complete change in lifestyle. It's very difficult but you can do it! Just don't give up.

Try drinking alot of water and also make sure your snacks are healthy snacks. Pleaty of fruits aren't bad for you. Like watermellon. That is so sweet yet good for you also.

Depression and loneliness are one of the leading causes of eating disorders. Most of the time people develop eating habits because they have nothing better to do so engage yourself in other activities. I don't know much about you so I can't suggest much. I think you need to go to the doctor or a diet consultant.

Get a hobby that takes your mind off eating. I crochet and cross stitch so my hands are busy and therefore i cannot eat all the time....

I am what my mom calls a "grazer". I snack non stop! I have an office job and I can eat steadily all day sitting at my desk. Since I quit my second job as a waitress a few months ago I have gained 10 pounds! I am not happy about it, and I don't even eat when I'm hungry, I eat out of boredom. I literally grocery shop for my office! I have microwaveable mac n cheese, those Soups at Hand, a box of triscuits, a bag of licorice nibs, a box of Jelly Bellys, and chocolate bars in my desk! I need help with this habit too.
