There are almost no words for the unique addiction that plagues 34-year-old Kesha (no $ sign), requiring her to carry and consume toilet paper as an everyday snack.

Kesha is featured in a snippet from TLC’s show “My Strange Addiction” that went viral online Tuesday, highlighting her addiction and her family’s efforts to understand it and stop it.

“I like how it feels when it goes on my tongue,” explained Kesha. “I guess it’s an acquired taste.”

The strange addiction sometimes leads her to ingest half a roll of two-ply toilet paper a day, which she’ll carry in a zip lock bag in her purse or in her car’s glove compartment.

“A good place where people don’t really pay attention to you eating toilet paper is the movie theatres,” she explained. “It’s dark in there so you can sneak a couple of sheets it and no one even notices.”

“My Strange Addiction” premieres December 29 at 9/8c on TLC.
