How do I stop emotional eating?

I eat when I am bored, I eat when I am tired, I eat when I am frustrated. I am constantly eating for reasons other than hunger. How do I stop? It's like it just slips under my radar and next thing I know, I have polished off a whole pie, or cookies or bag of potato chips.

Wondering how many calories a day are you eating?

I was informed I should be eating between 1200-1600? Is this what everyone else is aiming for?
