very VERY addictive! one of my best friends keeps telling me that she's doing it again, and it's really making me angry. she won't get help, but she keeps doing it and then complaining that no one cares that she does it. of course, I live completely out of the city now, so I never see her anymore! so I can't do ANYTHING to help.
