Worth the weight… –
May 26, 2020 – James ‘Arg’ Argent has said his drug addiction was a symptom of an eating order after years battling with his weight.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star – who recently opened up about suffering a near-fatal cocaine overdose in 2019 – has now told how he turned to binging on drugs and junk food to cope with jokes about his weight. Argent, 32, told The Sun: “The core of my addiction stems from my eating disorder. I binge on food if I hate the way I look…
“I’d feel down so I’d start using drugs at 9pm until 6am, not eating a thing. Then I’d wake up, feel low and be absolutely starving and I would binge on everything from fizzy drinks, burgers, fast food, crisps, snacks, pizzas, takeaways to the point where I couldn’t possibly eat any more to feel better.
