OMG I kept hearing about this show “My Strange Addiction” so when I found it on the Learning Channel a couple of months ago I started taping it on my PVR, but I didn’t get around to watching any of the shows until this week and well … uhm … these people need help!
I don’t think on any of the shows that I’ve seen so far that any of the people have stopped their obsessive behaviors .. not the girl that loves to make and wear fur costumes, not the woman that eats toilet paper, not the woman that eats couch cushions and I’ll bet that the show that I’m currently watching – the one with the guy with the “real doll” and the woman who picks her scabs, I’ll bet that they both continue with their behaviors too.
I think everyone probably has something that they are a little too obsessed with or perhaps a little too unhealthily addicted too .. but these people really carry it too far. Most of their behaviors or addictions are harmful. One of the shows I watched was about a woman who was addicted to weight lifting. You’d think overall that that might be ok, but she was injecting growth hormone and taking large doses of supplements and who knows maybe too much calcium supplements for all I know. I don’t think the weight lifting itself was all that bad – at least not at an hour a day or so, but when it was at 6 hours a day and with everything else she was truly doing herself harm.
Do you have any strange addictions or obsessions? Hopefully they aren’t as bad as the ones on the show “My Strange Addiction” but if they are have you ever tried to do something about it?
