    Does anyone else watch this show on TLC? Some of these addictions are unbelievable. Most of the people on the show are women and all relatively young.
    Here are a few that had us dry heaving last night:

    This woman is addicted to Vicks Vapor-Rub. Not applying it to her chest, but eating it from the jar and putting it in her coffee as sweetener!!! :eek:



    This woman is addicted to drinking animal and human blood. She even paints and cooks with it !



    Here she is in action, sucking her friend's arm (I assume she gave him an AIDs test first)



    This woman is addicted to eating car tire shavings. Ironically, she resembles the michelin tire man:



    This woman is addicted to eating deodorant. She bites chunks out of speed stick and sprays deodorant right on her tongue:



    This woman is addicted to eating foam from mattresses:



    and this woman is addicted to carrying around and eating her husband's ashes:




    I feel so normal, thanks TLC! :dancin2:

    I thought the vapor rub was fake, I don't see how someone could do that. They showed her carrying around three bottles of vicks and two inhalers in one scene. When questioned how long it would last, she said the end of the night! :eek:

    The thing that makes me suspicious of the show is that in every doctor scene (I saw), their test results all revealed that they were OK. I was expecting some serious damage.

    Without watching the videos, I can say with a high degree of confidence that all of them should be killed, with the exception of the woman eating her husban'd ashes. That's actually pretty sad.

    Yeah I've seen many episodes of this show. There was also a woman that eats dry wall. A MAN that was addicted to cleaning hair out of drains....all kind of drains, shower drains, sink drains - totally gross. I remember a similar show (i think it's called Freaky Eaters or something also on TLC) that had a woman who put tarter sauce on everything and ate it straight out of the jar. They poured all the tarter sauce she'd eat in a year into a swimming pool and made her slide down a slide into it if I remember correctly.


    At Least tartar sauce is food. The other weird eaters suffer from Pica - disease/condition where people are compelled to eat non- food substances. Sometimes it's in response to certain minerals lacking from their diet which can be fixed and the weird cravings go away.

    My gf told me that was the sickest one she saw-- pulling the hair from the drains. I looked for that one to post, but couldn't find it. Doesn't he rub it on his face or something weird?

    I thought only cats get Pica :snicker:

    None of the people depicted here are quite as strange as this one woman I know who's addicted to keeping living creatures as play toys for a few weeks at a time - until she gets bored of them - all the while displaying an insatiable desire to lie around her house with her eyes closed, pretending to be asleep, taking photos of herself with these animals in poses which would falsely suggest that the captive creatures have some attachment to her. She then publishes these photos by various means in the hopes of soliciting nurturing and supportive feedback from complete and utter strangers. :wtf:

    Yeah, it's a bit like the "world's longest ingrown hair" story I saw posted last night. Fascinating and all, but not really something I need to see for myself. :jj:

    That's not as bad as the guy who had a funny radio show, was respected by his listeners and very rich but being addicted to almonds, cocks and a bimbo. It's chronic sadly.
