I delt with this same problem when I was young, like 6 I loved to eat them I did it off and on till about 18. I’m 30 now and I’m starting to crave them again. My mouth literally waters at the thought of eating them again smh. I read that people with iron deficiency (which I’ve struggled with most my life) have these kind of cravings. I never knew match heads can poison your organs. That definitely stops my fantasizing about eating them again I also fantasize about eating coal smh. I’ve tasted it on occasion but haven’t really indulged like with match heads.
I have the same urge, I had lots of matches when I was a kid and now I have the same urge again at 34
May be try a multi mineral (having all the minerals) tablet for a month and then see ?
I light a wooden match and inhale the fumes..... then I let the wooden match burn down as low as I can. Once the tip is cool, I eat the lil sulfur ball and then the burnt match stick. Luv the taste of the salty burnt sulfur & the crunchy burnt wood
Hi thank god there's someone else out there I eat a box at least a day if I don't have them I have a real craving where I have to have on it what no matter what time it is and when I don't have my my little irritable I've been doing it since I was 20 years old slow down a little bit but I love them and have to have them pray for me
I have been eating match heads when I was small but stop now I am 29 have two kids and guess what I am doing it again but now I have a different way of eating it I put the match sticks on the stove let it burn down then put them on a napkin take the match heads out and eat the body of the match sticks.
But I know something is not right so I am going to get help because I need help. I have two kids to live for.
