Strange Addictions that are Too Weird to be True
Some people have a weirdly obsessive nature to the point where you think they aren’t normal. Fun fact, most people are addicted to something that they are too guilty to reveal publicly. However, we dug deeper to spill some tea about people’s weird addictions. Here are some:
1. Sniffing Baby Powder
You must have heard about drug addiction in athletes or people snorting coke which may seem normal to you. However, what blows people’s minds more than people taking cocaine is snorting the baby powder. Baby’s smell is addictive, we get that, but snorting baby powder up your nose is no way near normal. Some people say it is as addictive as a drug, and they can’t go even a day without doing it. We find it one of the crazy obsessions of all time; what do you think?
2. Eating Drywall
You may have heard about the weirdest traffic rules, but we bet there is nothing crazier than consuming drywalls. We thought only mites are obsessed with eating walls and taking down the damn thing in a week. However, some people reportedly eat drywalls faster than mites. Some people are so addicted to eating walls that they leave large holes in them.
3. Punching Walls
One of the painful and strangest addictions people have is self-harm. Usually, people with mental disorders such as anger management issues, depression, and anxiety are inclined towards it. People stimulate happy hormones when they punch the walls. Their happiness depends on inflicting some pain on themselves. The obsession can become so unhealthy to the point where people punch walls and bruise their knuckles out of habit.
4. Drinking Hot Sauce
We all love our famous hot sauce as it spices up any bland food. Would you drink the whole bottle of hot sauce in one go? If you do, we judge you because that’s straight-up weird. When searching for weird celebrities, we got to know Shay Mitchell is obsessed with hot sauce. She can’t let go of her obsession even when she is traveling. She likes to carry a good amount of hot sauce in a ziplock in her bag. In her tweet, she expressed how she is the woman that carries her hot sauce stash everywhere she goes.
5. Chucking Nail Polish
Nail polish is one of the bizarre products that the whole female population is obsessed with. Correction, the female population, and some men are obsessed with putting it on. Can you believe that some weird people like to drink it also? Well, it is one of the weird and funny addictions that can make you end up in hospital. A female named Berth admitted that she likes to consume five to six bottles of nail polish a day. We are gutted that she spends so much money on nail polishes rather than Gatorade.
6. Plastic Surgeries
The soaring beauty standards get you questioning your looks multiple times a day. However, the obsession with looking beautiful does not take over people to the point where they spend millions of dollars looking uglier than they used to be. Some people are obsessed with getting plastic surgeries to the point where they look like weird animals. It is an unhealthy obsession that needs to be medically treated before losing its sanity.
7. Getting Tattoos
Tattoos are fun and cool when done in moderation. Some people are just straight-up obsessed with getting themselves inked. The obsession with tattoos is driven by insecurities that hide people’s bodies. Getting a few small tattoos is normal, but even hiding your eyeball with ink is not the most normal thing.
8. Eating Glass
You may have seen or heard of strange buildings made with glass, and they seem so cool. How would you react when you know people are obsessed with eating glass? There is a medical term for obsession with eating glass called Hyalophagia. Some people end up sustaining bad injuries because of it. Medical experts say people who eat glass are in desperate need of attention.
Are people with weird obsessions insane?
People with the strangest obsessions are not insane, but addictions cause them happiness. It is not dangerous to have weird obsessions until and unless you prioritize your health. However, it’s best to seek medical advice and check to get rid of your obsession. It’s best not to depend on anything to stimulate happy hormones.
