Gag alert – consider yourself forewarned as this episode could make you gag or vomit. Even the lady who drinks several bottles of nail polish a day or the woman who chews on dryer sheets can’t top tonight’s episode of My Strange Addiction.
Tonight’s new episode of My Strange Addiction will introduce viewers to Carrie, a Colorado woman who for the past four years has been addicted to drinking about five glasses (roughly 80 ounces) of her own urine a day. She believes that it has helped treat her cancer, despite no medical proof claiming it has resulted in increased energy and strengthening her joints and muscles.
“I like warm pee, it’s comforting,” she says. “The first time I drank my urine I didn’t throw up and it wasn’t horrible, so I thought ‘you know what, I can do this.’”
She goes on to explain how the taste of her urine is dependent on what she’s consumed and how’s she’s learned through trial and error what to stay away from – like asparagus, which apparently doesn’t taste as good recycled.
Carrie doesn’t limit her consumption to just drinking urine out of a glass — she brushes her teeth with her urine, consumes it via an eye cup and pouring it into the corner of her eye socket, she even saves her urine for a week and rubs the old urine on her body as a lotion.
If you can stomach it, My Strange Addiction: Urine Drinker airs on TLC tonight (Sunday, March 18) at 9pm ET/PT.
