from a cheap high to costly elective surgeries addiction can take many forms body modification of any kind can be addictive but while other forms like tattooing and piercing provide an addictive rush of endorphins and adrenaline as a result of the pain inherent to the modifications an addiction to cosmetic surgery which is typically performed using a variety of pain numbing anesthetics stems from body dysmorphic disorder or BDD they had told me that weight gain was part of kind of the the side effect of having it be that cause of BDD is unclear but it's characterized by an overwhelming sense

referred to as trichotillomania isn't just limited to the head some pull out hairs from their eyebrows arms legs armpits or even pubic region I have is I like to pluck my pubes while more subtle than other forms of self-harm hair pulling stems from the same psychological need to exercise control over the human body when one feels a lack of control over other aspects of their life in either personal or professional spheres see my scalp parts right now like it hurts in some cases trichotillomania acts even ingest their own hair after pulling it out number six attending funerals do dine a

consumption of urine or your aphagia actually isn't that uncommon you'd keep your mouth shut if you knew it was good for you buddy people have historically consumed it for numerous reasons including

I ate my mattress already looking for a convenient snack to pair with that glass of urine how about the sofa or this lazy boy Hika is a particular eating disorder where the individual feels compelled

blood also known as clinical vampirism or Renfield syndrome can prove not only addictive but also deadly never a bad time for me to drink blood the condition had previously been observed in Psychological studies of extremely violent criminals more recently this addiction stems from an obsession with vampires or a small minority of people who actually find that human blood cures them of fatigue headaches and other discomforts relief from which these real-life vampires claim to not be able to find via any traditional medical treatment it would try drinking blood well it looks you know

is among one of the more disturbing forms of Piko syndrome scientists don't know what causes Piko although some believe it may be related to deficiencies in minerals like iron but none of these

  1. How Cheez-It arent on the list os beyond me. I don't know somebody who isn't personally affected by Cheez-Its

  2. The fact that not only she's drinking urine, but it's a golden yellow/orange color is a problem. She's super sick!

  3. Im addicted of the smell of fridge in mall with frozen fries.. hotdogs i just put my head there and smell on it

  4. Trichotillomania is not an addiction, it's a psychological disorder. I've suffered with it since I was 14 and it's not something that I do for satisfaction, I do it because I can't not do it.
    I'd appreciate it if people didn't think of it as an addiction because it is a disorder that I and many others have medically been diagnosed with. For anyone who is reading this, have a nice day.
