Stress eating well on the way into binge eating. How do I stop it?!

So I eat crap when I'm stressed (mostly sweets, occasionally something salty/fatty like chips). Problem is, I work long hours in a high pressure high stress job these days. I also work in a hospital, an environment rich in calorific free food, so whenever I start to freak out, there's something for me to eat nearby. How can I stop this?
I already eat healthy meals and bring healthy snacks from home. It's just that I can suck down 10 or 15 cookies (or whatever) before I'm even really conscious that I'm doing it, and that's about half the total calories I should be eating for the day! Besides wearing a muzzle, what can I do?
