    I'm afraid I'm growing an addiction.

    I take 1 laxative every week. The most I probably take is 2 a week. Sometimes I abuse and sometimes I need them to help with my bowel movements. This started around March and I don't take them every week but most. Am I addicted? And I want to drink prune juice instead of taking...

    Something I am very ashamed of

    and embarrassed to tell anyone about. I have grown addicted over the last few months. I take too many fiber doses and laxatives in fear of being fat. I felt this was the more natural way to do it but now I am just stuck and very embarrassed to tell anyone that I have a problem.
