Hello,
I have pics and have craved all sorts of things. The last couple years it was charcoal. I ate 5-10 briquettes a day. I couldn't stop. I was in the hospital earlier this summer and amongst other things they discovered I was severely anemic. So I left the hospital with a prescription for iron supplements and Zoloft (for anxiety) my craving/ desperate compulsion was cured. I stopped and have no desire to start again

Gosh, how about that. It must feel good good that you aren't trapped by the briquette thing anymore, 

 

 Is your sense that controlling anemia was part of it, or more that Zoloft helped with the anxiety and compulsions ?

 

How great that you got a handle on this.
