Are there people with no vices? Is it possible to switch one vice for another?

I've been struggling with food for some years now, and this year I've been focusing on eating when I'm hungry and stopping when I'm full which seems to be working well! I've been a lot more positive and happy because of it. But a couple times a month it still affects me, and I'm wondering if this is something that may stay with me forever? I've heard that everyone has an addiction, and I thought maybe I could try to find a new addiction when I get tired or upset instead of turning to food. Having a bath doesn't help which seems to be what most people recommend, but painting really helps even though it isn't something I crave like food..
So do you think this is something I just have to deal with, or can I try to get a new addiction to replace this one? Thank you
