People quickly become attached to something – each of us has his own hobbies or habits. However, often an innocent addiction can become a maniacal addiction. She eventually begins to acquire strange shapes. Even the usual and innocuous reading of books can become what will ruin life. And there are dependencies that also damage health.
Dependence on reading.
This case surprised even psychiatrists. It turns out that the disease of the inner ear can lead to unhealthy craving for reading. Because of this, a person can no longer concentrate, he has unfounded fears, anxieties and phobias. And after recovery people start a lot and read greedily. After all, now this process is becoming so easy, bringing much more joy and pleasure. People with addiction to books cease to sleep even as they can not tear themselves away from the reading. Doctors say that some patients even give up their work.
Dependence on sunburn. Who would not want to have a bronze tan? But everything is good in moderation. After all, there is dependence on sunburn, which is called tanorexia. Some have an obsessive desire to have swarthy skin, as a result they are ready to give the last resort to once again visit the solarium or get a tan. It is clear that this dependence is most often found in young women. But it is worth remembering that excessive sunbathing can have a negative impact on health. There is some evidence that this dependence may have a biological basis. But the methods of treatment are only being studied.
Dependence on drops from the common cold.
Everyone knows that neither children nor adults like to be treated. Who wants to feel the beauty of mustard plasters, drops and drops? It turns out that there are adults who are so used to drugs that they continue to use them after recovery. One 33-year-old woman described how for 7 years she has an irresistible craving for drops in her nose. At first the medicine was used for a cold, but the effect was so noticeable that she continued to drip the medicine and after recovery. This led to the fact that the nose immediately “pawns”. To get rid of this dependence, doctors are strongly advised to stop using drops, but she can not part with her habit.
Andy’s boy listens to his IPOD almost around the clock. He does this while at work, and at home, watching TV. The boss, colleagues and friends treat such a whim quite indulgently. But the girl was already worried, she believes that for that music has already become more important than the relationship. Dependence on ice cream.
It’s hard to find someone who does not like ice cream. Some like plombir, but someone prefers creamy. But this can cause dependency. So, 51-year-old Susan loves fruit ice cream without sugar, and her love for delicacy is such that she eats 12 portions a day. The woman for 4 years did not know the measures in the use of ice cream. Eventually, the doctors told her that such dependence is nothing but a clear sign of anemia. This disease is characterized by a decrease in the number of red blood cells, in the blood, the level of hemoglobin can decrease.
Crackberry is an addiction to Blackberry.
There are sick people who simply can not tear themselves away from their phone. They constantly check their mail in it, listen to messages. This is a real Blackberry addiction. Experts say that the electronic messages in the device literally make their life meaningful. People begin to feel important. To cure Crackberry, as well as any such dependence (from the Internet or e-mail) can be done in one way only – by forcible tearing away from the object of entrainment. Addiction to cosmetic surgery.
Those who do not suffer from such dependence, after a visit to a plastic surgeon, forget about it, being content with the result. But more and more you can meet some kind of drug addicts. They want to go through another procedure, then again and again. And all this in pursuit of an impeccable manner. Have your breasts been made? It’s time to make a nose, then eyes. And so on ad infinitum. Such dependence will lead to the fact that the body will become simply awful. The famous drug addict millionaire Jocelyn Wildenstein has already spent 4 million dollars, trying to make yourself beautiful. The result is depressing. Although she considers herself irresistible, everyone calls her only as the bride of Frankenstein. The exact cause of this relationship is unknown. Doctors believe that all the blame for a complex combination of not only psychological, but also biological and even environmental factors. Pagofagia, a predilection for ice.
Pagophagia is an obsession to chewing ice constantly. Scientific studies have shown that such a deviation may be a sign of low iron content in the blood. Introduction to the diet of vitamins “B” can help increase the production of red cells of blood cells, and vitamin “C” will help absorb iron in the body. So with this deviation it is quite possible to struggle. Propensity for funerals.
This dependence is so unique that specialists do not even know how to name it. The Brazilian Luis Squarisi suffers from his predilection for funerals. A 42-year-old resident of Batatais took part in every mourning event in his city in the last 20 years. He was even forced to quit his job in order to fully please his dependence. Louis was greatly shocked by the death of his father in 1983. Now the first thing he does every morning is turn on the radio. If there is no news about the death of someone, then he calls the hospital and the morgue. And the representatives of the local funeral home do not want Louis to be treated at all. After all, everyone expects to see him at the funeral.
Geophagy, addiction to dirt.
Unusual practice of having land is fairly well documented in medical and anthropological journals. It was called geophysics. The social norms of Western society are quite strong, so such a predilection is quite common among primitive or economically backward peoples. It also occurs in animals, which in this way replenish their meager or scarce reserves of minerals. This practice is often found in people who have chronic mental illness. But in the slums of Haiti, people daily make and eat pies from the ground. It is mixed with water and filtered through cheesecloth to remove inedible stones. Then the dough is formed into pancakes and toasted. This dish can be purchased in local markets for five coins. Fortunately for exports such food does not go, but just in case, look behind the shelves of supermarkets. Quite a lot of fame came to a girl from Inner Mongolia, who 11 of her 18 years of age feeds on the land.
Addiction to teeth whitening.
It seems that there are more and more people who so often whiten their teeth that it turns into addiction. After this simple and effective procedure has passed, people want to return to it again and again. But this addiction has a couple of side effects – increased sensitivity of the teeth and irritation of the gums. Today, only in the US, about 1.5 billion dollars are spent on teeth whitening and accompanying procedures per year.
