Ok, I am addicted to really weird things.. - March 28th 2010, 12:25 AM

Now, I have tried stopping, it sounds stupid, but I end up craving them and going all fidgety

- Fabric

- Ice that gathers in the freezer

- Polos (Polo Mints, I am on 7 packets a day O.O)

Yeah, I don't know about the ice, but the other two could actually affect my health.

Any suggestions on how I can stop the urge to eat these?!

Btw, I don't like gum.. Yeah I'm awkward.

This is my first reply on this site but I am pretty sure that you have an eating disorder called Pica (you might already know that but you didnt say). Ideally you should go see your doctor because there are treatments available.... don't feel bad about it it is a medical thing.

Untill then I honestly don't really have any advice for how to deal with the cravings, I guess mind over matter is your best bet.

Hope that helped.
