My Strange Addiction 1

Image 1 / 10

Imagine not being able to sleep without the hairdryer on in bed, or explaining to people why you eat half a toilet roll of paper a day, secretly swallow household cleaner or eat soap in the shower. My Strange Addiction tells the compelling stories of people who are battling obsessive behaviours which are taking over their lives. Also featured is 24-year-old Rhonda who can't stop sucking her thumb, Rebecca who is addicted to shoes and owns over 200 pairs, referring to them as her babies, Barbara who is fascinated with death and prefers the company of those who have passed on to those who are living and Debbie who is severely allergic to cats but has over twenty of them. Why have these individuals turned to such extreme measures in order to ease anxieties? And can anyone or anything shake them from their addictions before they injure themselves?
