what does “binge on elimination” mean?

Firstly sorry for my bad English.

I'm translating a book about behavior. what does "binge on elimination" mean in the following context: "We will shed an unreliable friend who causes us grief, stop drinking caffeine because it makes us jittery, quit a stultifying job that ruins our day, stop a habit that might be killing us. When the consequence is extreme distress, we binge on elimination."?
