In a new episode of TLC's My Strange Addiction, airing Wednesday (9 p.m. ET), a man named Josh discusses – and demonstrates – his glass-eating habit.
"When I bite into the glass, I just get like a warm feeling," the Wooster, Ohio, resident says. "Normally when I look for glass to eat I look for champagne glasses, wine glasses, light bulbs. The reason I pick these are because they're usually a thinner glass."
In a clip from the show, Josh reveals he's been eating glass for four years and that "I enjoy this a whole lot." He's consumed more than 250 light bulbs and 100 glasses, according to the clip.
So how did Josh start eating glass? "I came across glass eating in a book that I was eating," he says. "It was kind of scary at first and then when I realized that it didn't seem to be doing damage to me, it got a lot easier for me to do."
Though Josh says he knows eating glass could be dangerous, he admits that he doesn't do it alone but prefers to eat it in front of others at parties and get-togethers. "I love reactions I get from people," he says. "I guess more than anything, I'm really addicted to the attention."
