Hunger or withdrawal?

    For me one of the points that has become clear is the ideal between hunger and withdrawals. We often say we are hungry, but are we really. I recently watched a man going through a park digging through ever trash can eating whatever he could find. I think he was probably hungry. But he might not have been, since most of what he was digging out of the trash was processed or fast food.
   So what is a good indication that you are truly hungry and not just addicted to the food you are craving? For now we won't even bring in some of the other aspects of eating like; comfort, entertaining, or boredom. When you are hungry, that should be the only sensation you feel. You shouldn't be angry or irritable. You shouldn't have a headache. You should just feel hungry.
