I was wondering - if champix helps with impulse control, will it perhaps help when one has bulimia nervosa that especially surfaces when one is anxious and uses an eating disorder like bulimia as a stress contol method?

No - champix is in fact not usually recommended for people who have eating disorders, but the decision to prescribe it will be made looking at your full medical history. There are several other medications, however, that have proved very effective for treating bulimia and other eating disorders, so please ask your doctor about these.
