I can't stop eating ice. I mean seriously, I can't stop it. What the heck is making me crave ice? Does anyone else do this?
I've been tested for anemia, came back normal. I never ever drink water, maybe I'm just dehydrated.
Ever heard of an ice addit before.

Maybe it's a nervous habit? Or done out of boredom? Or you're hungry?
Edit: Dry mouth?

I can't live without it! My husband makes fun of me for always wanting the "good" ice (aka crushed ice). I will go out of my way to find a place with crushed ice versus the hard, cubed stuff. I will choose Sonic over every other fast food place just becuase of their ice! Do you think we need a 12 step program? :uhoh21:
Ooooh, I love that crushed pellet-like ice!!! It's the only kind I can munch on, and I can see how it would be addicting. Our hospital has it for filling patient water pitchers and stuff, but unfortunately our unit doesn't have a machine. We're NICU, so we don't give out water pitchers. No ice for me.
I'm so jealous about the Sonic trips - I totally want to go there! It really ticks me off - I'm in Chicago, and they play Sonic commercials CONSTANTLY. What I wouldn't give for a sourdough sandwich and cherry limeade! But hello, the closest Sonic is over 100 miles away!!! WHY do they TORTURE us with those commercials!?!?!
I had no idea it was a sign of anemia. Any theories on that?
If you never drink water, eat all the ice you can to make up for it.
ETA: Sorry, the Sonic sandwiches are Texas Toast, not sourdough. I just saw another freaking commercial that corrected me. SICK SICK SICK how these commercials are on so often.

I love to chew ice! Cubes! Because I can. I couldn't chew hardly anything or my teeth would crack and break. I got them all capped. Hard porcelin crowns..worth the money for me. I chew ice like second nature...and so does my dentist. It's not anemia for me. My HGB is always 15-17...for a girl no less. Was anemic as a teen...but...I only remember wanting to chew suckers...not ice.
