There are all sorts of weird addictions, you just need to google it.
There's a show on it "My strange addiction" or something like that.
People eat cigarette buts, ashes, metal, glass, laxatives
Sex, Money, Drugs
Food, Coffee, Sleep
Shopping, Exercising, Tanning
You name it. Someone somewhere is addicted to it.
I'll also make a note: Who are people here on ATS to judge? You know addictions control right? And that most people who have said addictions cannot completely control it. Its a mental issue. Abortion addiction is really messed up and strange, but its like any other addiction.edit on 17/4/12 by AzureSky because: (no reason given)

I forget what the psychology term is called ... when people fake being sick to get attention and/or make themselves sick to get attention. This could be part of that mental health problem.
