I believe I have an addiction to eating the tablets of alka seltzer. I would skip meals to eat them and I would be eating at least 8 tablets a day. I had tried to stop but it caused me physical pain, like excruciating stomach pains. I can feel it tearing at my throat but I can't stop and it's beginning to worry me. I even spit up blood once and I believe it was from that there is nothing else it could be. I'm beginning to fear for my health.
