Hi and welcome to Addicted to Ice, where I feel I need to make it clear that this page is not about being addicted to “ICE” as in Crystal Meth!!! Obviously I thought of the website name before I realized it had anything to do with drugs and it is rather unfortunate … So … If you have arrived here looking for Crystal Meth I would advise you to see a medical professional or Drug Councilor.
So the type of Ice that I’m addicted to is a lot more boring than that but certainly not as bad for me!! My addiction is to plain old Frozen Water – but my do I love it!! I’m the first to admit that I’ve never had a good diet, some of this is because I’m Autistic, and the rest because I’m Lazy! I have had various health problems in the past and have learned about Nutrition and Supplements to help me with these problems. In some areas I have had dramatic success and some outstanding results! However, Anemia and B12 Deficiency have plagued my life – and along with those problems – comes an irresistible craving for crunching Ice!
Why I started this Website.
I know that I’m not the only person who “suffers” from this problem, (although I may well be the most extreme) but it’s difficult to find any kind of advice or even understanding about it! I don’t remember a time when I didn’t crave Ice – I have vivid memories of going to my friends house at the age of about 12 and scraping Ice from the roof of her freezer and eating it with a spoon! I also had a cashier job at a local supermarket and would scrape the ice from the bar code to scan it (even though you didn’t need to!) then suck my finger once the customer had gone! I know this is gross but other people must be having to cope with this kind of thing with no one to talk to about it!
As I have grown up I have found countless ways to make my life easier and more comfortable, like buying Ice machines to make Ice at home, buying particular thermos cups to keep Ice cold when I’m out and about, finding the restaurants and cafe’s that have unlimited Ice machines. I want to pass on this information to anyone that needs it – and also to reassure people that they’re not alone in this strange habit!
I want to help you to save money and stay healthy.
I hope to be able to talk about the health issues and deficiencies which can exacerbate this problem, and also help you to understand which items would be genuinely useful. There are certain foods and supplements which help with deficiencies and I will be trying to find the best value for all of us!
Of course, you may have just stumbled across my website because you are looking for an Ice Machine for your home in the summer or for information about B12 deficiency, and of course, you are more than welcome. Make yourself comfortable – grab a cup of ice and enjoy my ramblings!
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
