  1. Wait, what? She is 19, has been eating deodorants since she was 4, but only became addicted two years ago? What, it took 13 years to finally get addicted?

    I think the journalist (?) that wrote this does not know the definition of addiction.

    On the plus side, I bet her breath smells good.

  2. Television (somehow) finds people who (for some alleged, long-term reason) eat weird things (that really won’t hurt them)…and instead of smacking them in the head and telling them to knock it off, we shove a camera in their face and put them on television….



    • Yeah… I’m not sure what to make of these “My Strange Addiction” shows.

      Part of me thinks they’re just attention-seekers faking it for TV.

      If something doesn’t have any chemicals that interact with the human brain in a manner that has been found to lead to addictive behavior, is it really an addiction?

      Honestly, I don’t know. Does this craziness mean that we can become addicted to anything and everything? Perhaps “chocoholism” is really an epidemic.

      As someone battling addiction and chemical dependency problems myself, I worry that these “addiction” shows diminish the public’s understanding of actual physical addiction.
