I'm addicted to lemon cough drops. Four years now and it got ugly this last month. I actually am triing to quit but its hard. I hate the way my mouth tastes. I brush my teeth a lot . I hope I can cut it out it was getting costly.

i love Halls Honey Lemon cough drops . i can eat a bag of 30 in one day and a bag of 80 in two days . i just love the menthol in them with the flavor . i will suck on them for a few seconds then bite them and enjoy the cooling through my nose from the menthol . i will eat about 6 of them back to back and i do this about every 3 hours . i recently found out that they cannot kill me , only cause upset stomach and/or diarrhea . i will continue to eat them until they affect my health .

Addiction to Halls Cough Drops
| Jacquelyne Punchard
When I was pregnant with my son I would crave Halls Cough Drops just the regular flavor. My cravings would get so intense I had my husband literally stealing me Halls Cough Drops. My son is now 18 years old and throughout the years I didn't crave them until maybe 4 or 5 years ago. I am still addicted to the cough drops. I don't suck on them, when I put them in my mouth I chew them and swallow them in little chunks. The funny thing to me is that I don't crave the different flavors or any other brand of cough drops just Halls. The store by where I live stocks the cough drops just for me and are aware when I have someone else goes in to buy them for me. They don't even ask "What flavor", they ask "How many". I have never smoked cigarettes in my life but I notice when I get stressed or bored I sense to crave them more. My friend couldn't use vapor rub around me because the smell would get my mouth to water. As of now I can literally eat a bag of Halls Cough drops with 30 to 90 in a bad in less than a hour.
