My Strange Addiction

My Strange Addiction

``Strange'' doesn't seem to adequately describe some of the addictive behaviors profiled on this series. ``Dangerous,'' even ``life-threatening,'' come much closer. Each half-hour episode features two adults who resort to extreme compulsions in an effort to soothe their emotional demons. Some of the addictions explored include sleeping with a turned-on blow dryer, eating bathroom cleanser, eating half a roll of toilet paper a day, extreme bodybuilding and thumb sucking.

Premiere:
Dec 29, 2010
