My Strange Addiction - (2x60, 36x30) documents the shocking stories of people who are battling obsessive behaviors that are on the verge of taking over their lives. Each half hour episode features two individuals who turn to bizarre compulsions to deal with their emotional demons. Some people turn to chocolate when stressed, others indulge in retail therapy, but the individuals featured on My Strange Addiction resort to extreme and unusual habits in an effort to emotionally regulate their deep, dark anxieties. The strange addictions explored in the series range from women obsessed with eating sofa cushions, household detergent, toilet paper and chalk to people addicted to sleeping with their blow dryer, bleaching their skin and picking their scabs. In each episode, compelling characters reveal their strange addictions while experts help them explore the reasons they have turned to such extreme measures.
