Sniffing Toast... What's Your Addiction?

My name is Katy and I am a minis addict... well, I used to be a cake/choc/binge-eat addict, so that is definitely an improvement! Think lots of us are addicted to minis, but do you have any other weird addictions since starting CD - or before?

I am addicted to sniffing toast... not the burnt bread, but the pages of the Toast clothes catalogue! I don't know what they use in that ink but I love it. I tear open the wrapper and take a deep breath in... sigh!!! Sadly the clothes are expensive so I mostly buy when they have a sale, but hey, sniffing is free!

What's your addiction?

Well I'm only on day three so far so haven't observed anything too strange yet I'm afraid. Although your post title did make me laugh and when I read that you hadn't really smelt Toast I felt slightly embarrassed as last night out of pure desperation I ended up sniffing a naan bread. :S

LMAO...this thread is so funny..I found myself 'mouth breathing' last night when doing my daughter dinner! (that was not using by nose at all) I didnt want to be tempted by sniffing her yummy dinner :(

Hmmm, like the smell of petrol too, but that's probably a bit like saying you like to sniff glue... best not go there! Just like the idea of toast-free toast, I guess!

Google Toast. You will not get sites full of food porn, alas, scantily clad slices of burnt bread slathered in... no. STOP!!! You won't, anyway, you will get a fashion website, bit pricey but fab. And they have the most AMAZING ink for their catalogues because when you open up the package and breathe in... WHOA.... better than food-toast any day. Either that or CD has finally scrambled my brain.

:giggle: Flip, that is expensive stuff. There was another site called toast which was an acronym for the obesity something, can't actually see it on google now.

Medical tape - you know the stuff that hold on bandages? Post-its just out the packet. Although they are both types of glue I suppose so really shouldn't admit to that.

Bleach. I love the smell of bleach

Beauty products indeed... this is half the attraction of the Boots/ Body Shop body butters I use. And the other week was in Glasgow with a pal, she was trying to entertain me without making me sit in Starbucks staring sadly at the muffins all day, so took me round one of the big department store beauty departments, trying samples of all the poshest things. We tried a bit of Laura Mercier body cream on the backs of our hands.

It smelled like heaven... almonds and vanilla combined, and it stayed ALL DAY. And at 5.30, just before heading for train, we ran back in and got another dollop... to last thru the evening. I can still imagine it now... but Lyn, if you think Toast clothes are expensive, you wanted to see the price of this. OMG. The pot was like £50 or something. My pal says I should treat myself to some when I get to goal, but how d'you justify that? Then again, if I treat it as a perfume rather than a body lotion, then maybe... !!!!

I know, Lush is lush!!! I have a better idea for ironing, take it and drop it off the nearest tall bridge into a fast-flowing river... sorted!

Few years ago i helped design the boxes for lush gift's and was sent loads of samples ... so i could plan the design and boxes with the products that fitted sadly after 3 days my office smelt so strong of lush it gave me a massive headache ever since then i can't even go near the shop i can smell it a mile off ... however i boxes looked nice and my friends loved the free samples lol

I love Lush products but I have to get someone to buy them for me. Even walking past the store gives me a headache, the smell is just overpowering.

I'm addicted to the smell of toast (the burnt bread kind) It was probably my favourite comfort food pre-CD and I won't let the kids have it for breakfast unless somebody else makes them it. I just do not trust myself not to nibble. They don't mind though, they've discovered the joys of Coco Pops as a compromise ;)

I'm also partial to the smell of washing powder. I can't go into the utility room without a big sniff of the stuff. When I was pregnant second time around I actually craved lemon scented washing powder after I dropped a bottle of lemon flavouring on the utility room floor. Lemon flavouring + washing powder = smelly heaven. I started buying Surf Lemon Fresh and would walk round sniffing clothes and bedding all the time to get my fix. Damn it having a craving I could not satisfy- first time round I craved scotch!

Magic Tree New Car smell air freshener. I discovered this by accident when some of my tissue packets became 'contaminated'.

I now devise cunning ways to contaminate more. :p

Makes having a headcold a lot easier.
