As you may or may not have guessed you have what is called pica. Pica means you crave non-food items, sometimes it is because your body is trying to supplement for a vitamin it is missing. To find out if this is your case, you should go to your primary care physician and get tested for a vitamin deficiency. If you are not deficient in any vitamins however, it is a psychological problem.
