It can certainly come back, particularly when you don't have the right medical support for the psychological issues that go alongside it.

You may have beaten it for good, you may not have done. Nobody knows until it comes back. But just remember that if it does come back, you know you've beaten it before, so you know that you'll be able to beat it again.

unfortunately you have to try and tackle the underlying issues such as low self esteem and improving coping mechanisms too and remain aware that the feelings and behaviours are likely to come back during periods of stress and change in your life and try and be very careful about eating well during those times

you've done it before so try and get on top of your relapse asap... binging is usually caused by something so you either need to remove the emotional cause (e.g. reduce stress) or you need to remove the physical cause (e.g. don't diet and don't purge or try and compensate for the binges)
