Anyone know any good resources on the binge/purge cycle and how to deal with it in a healthy way?

I notice a lot of users will permanently delete their account thinking they will never be back, then a couple weeks/months later they email me asking if they can get their old username back. So I have been considering adding some resources to the delete account section that might be useful. I just don't know if anything like this exists already 🤔


@james anyone with any Useful info on this would be good hear .....
think most people do suffer from this at different levels

@Daz_dluk yeah, I used to do it regularly back in the Tumblr days. Always got upset when I would come back as I would loose all my work I put into posts etc, which just made the cycles worse.
