I can't stop eating charcoal briquettes. I've had pica tendencies my whole life, but this recent flair up is bad. Does anyone else do this and have you had any health problems associated with it?

look into your iron levels

get some blood tests done and see if youre anemic, try taking some iron supplements/take the doctors advice if this is the case
