Addiction to anything is a terrible thing. It brings suffering not only to the person himself/herself, but also to the people around. Strange habits cause laughter, surprise, disgust and total rejection. But people just need professional help and support. Rehabilitation takes months and years.
7. Eating drywall
The walls are sometimes inhabited by little bugs that destroy drywall. This not only causes discomfort, but also damages the house, leading to extra expenses.

It is most often found in women, who experience metabolism misbalance in their body.
6. Relationship with a doll
It is sometimes difficult to build a relationship with another person, so one may use a doll for this purpose. There are people who get married and live with a doll as a couple. They dine together and go shopping. A man in love with a doll even makes massages and believes that they have a future. The main reason for this relationship is unknown, but experts tend to think that this condition is caused by Asperger’s syndrome or an experienced trauma, which manifests itself in social estrangement.
5. Eating toilet paper
We all know the main purpose of toilet paper. It is very rare that people perceive it as a food product as it looks like it’s not very appetizing.

1. Fall in love with a car
We will not deny that many men are crazy about their cars. But there are those who are really in love with them. They give pet names to their cars and treat them as women.

This is another example of fetishism and autism, when a person feels better dealing with inanimate objects rather than with people.
