How Did These Addictions Start?
On Anderson's "The Strangest Addictions Ever" show, he speaks with three guests who are addicted to their car, smelling moth balls or sleeping with a hair dryer. Given the absurdity and intensity of these addictions, Anderson wonders how they began in the first place.
Alicia, who is addicted to smelling mothballs, says that she first started smelling mothballs at her grandmother's house when she was a little girl.
"Unfortunately, my grandmother is not with us anymore, so it does remind me of her and happier times," Alicia says.
Lori has been sleeping with her hair dryer every night since she was young, an addiction she says is rooted in being one of 10 children.
