A US girl from Georgia is addicted to eating sellotape, consuming nearly 6,000 ft of tape a month, UK website Mail Online, reported.

“I am addicted to eating tape. If I see tape in front of me I will pick it up and just start chewing. I have to have it,” the 23-year-old, identified as Andrea, was quoted as saying by Mail Online.

Andrea first developed her addiction nine years ago, the report added.

“The first time that I ate tape was when I was out of gum, and there was tape. I took a piece, chewed it, and I’ve been chewing tape ever since,” she says, adding that she now eats three rolls of tape.
