Eating slate pencils
I love slate pencils a lot. I am eating one box per week. I could not give up this habit. My hemoglobin levels are low since 14yrs of age. This craving subsides whenever I focus on health and take iron supplements. It comes back when I stop supplements. I am a very healthy and systematic person otherwise. I love to eat them as stress busters during my meetings and work.
