I Can't Stop...

I have been eating toilet paper for almost 4 years now. I don't even remember how it started, all I know is one day I felt like eating it, and I did. It started out with maybe a sheet here and there, then eventually I would eat an entire roll of toilet paper in one day. I don't even think about it, its automatic, I walk into the bathroom, grab a bunch off the roll and eat it. I do have anemia, and do take iron supplements, but nothing has changed. I am 23 now and pregnant, and now I am worried that eating toliet paper will harm my baby. I am to ashamed to tell my family or my dr, and if it wasn't for being pregnant I never would have brought it up. I just feel very isolated, because of the "weridness" of this disorder, but reading other post and such made me feel better, because I am not alone and I am going to break my silence and talk to my family then my dr. about it tomorrow.

“My Strange Addiction” is currently casting for its second season on TLC. <br />
<br />
We are searching for people who have strange addictions and want to share their compelling personal story on a documentary television series. This non-exploitative program will explore how your behavior affects your life and those around you. <br />
<br />
The first season of the series told the stories of two dozen people and how their addictions were affecting their lives, work and relationships. While some people might turn to drugs or alcohol to deal with the stresses of everyday life, these addicts found comfort by eating toilet paper, sleeping with a running blow dryer or wearing a fur suit. Each addict received counseling for their addiction and learned how they could stop. <br />
<br />
Your obsession may be strange, embarrassing, and even odd, but if it’s affecting your life, we want to help you. <br />
<br />
We provide medical and psychological insights with the hope of getting people to conquer their addiction. Our production crew is trained to handle sensitive stories and, of course, each and every story will be treated delicately. <br />
<br />
Please be advised that we will need you to provide people in your life that are willing to be on camera to share their concerns with your behavior. <br />
<br />
If you or someone you know is battling an unusual addiction or behavior and would be interested in appearing on the show, please respond to this ad by providing the following information: your name, age, city, contact information, recent photo and brief summary on how your strange addiction is impacting your life. <br />
<br />
Please note that all inquiries will be kept confidential and whatever your story or crisis may be, we're hear to listen! Thank you so much for your interest in “My Strange Addiction.”

wow!.I eat tp too bt I like Charmin because it is two ply..I'm in the eigth grade and have been eating tp since my 6th grade summer. I dont want my mom or any one else to know because I dont want them to look at me like I'm different. I have nightmares about my family figuring out about it and judging me. I have a very supporting family but my siblings that are the same age or younger than me are the opposite when it comes to things like this. The reason why I eat tp is because I like the way it feels when I swallow it and when I grind it up with my teeth. I've stopped eating it before for about a week I just had to have another taste. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one. I wish I cou
