You might think these people are doing this for attention but the truth of the matter is that people get addicted to a variety of things. It’s important to remember that addiction is a mental illness.
Their addiction makes their brains produce chemicals for happiness and joy, they associate that weird thing with happiness and joy, and addiction is born. However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t…weird. Here are some weird addictions that are real!
Erm… Jesus? Can you please come down for a minute?
Drinking Human Blood
Yup! A real-life Vampire! Julia Caples drinks almost two liters of blood every month since she was 15 (she’s 45 now). Oh yh… she’s goth. According to her, when she feeds off on a person and drink their blood, she feels stronger and healthier.
