Woman drinks her urine on aptly titled 'Strange Addiction'3/16/2012
Meet Carrie, a 53-year-old woman who loves to drink her own urine. Carrie says, "I like warm pee. It's comforting. 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.'" Kind of like how they figured out they COULD re-create dinosaurs in "Jurassic Park," but they never questioned if they SHOULD. Also questionable: her habit of using urine to bathe and brush her teeth. Her daughter Cassie is concerned all this pee-guzzling could harm more than her mother's breath and credibility, though the practice drinking your own pee (urophagia) has its loyal adherents. Carrie will drink her urine on camera and muse about its subtle palette on TLC's "Strange Addictions" this week.
