Is it normal that i have a spice addiction?

A few years ago, I ate this "Samyang Buldak 2x spicy" thing because everyone raved about how impossibly hot it was. At first, I kind of agreed; I thought the stuff was pretty hot, but it was tasty, so I kept eating it. Eventually, it stopped being spicy, and I had to add extra stuff to it to get the same effect. This kept snowballing until I was eating hot stuff all the time, needing something hotter and hotter to satisfy my cravings. I'm now at the point where I am eating raw ghost peppers in order to get the same sensation I was getting years ago. Eventually, I feel like there's not gonna be anything else for me to eat, and I'm going to have to settle for "boring" again. I can't stop eating spicy foods, and I think I'm addicted to them because I keep needing hotter and hotter things? Normal?

    In all seriousness, I've heard eating too many extremely spicy foods can really mess up your insides, so best to be careful!

  • I believe it would be best if you relocated to the planet Arrakis, otherwise known as Dune so you have a local source for spice.

  • I thought you were gonna be talking about the spice that was sold in USA in the early 2010s. They banned it but it would make you twitch if you smoked it. Google "flakka" to see what it did if you smoked too much. Youd get it at a gas station it was always made in Pakistan. I use wonder if it was the taliban making it trying to make everyone in the USA crazy.

  • Yes, that’s what happens when you a lot of hot spices. You tastebuds become desensitized and you need more to taste them. But the effect on your internal organs is the same, not good. You should eat them in moderation or you’ll wind up with stomach or intestinal problems.

  • Your brain just happens to be wired up in a way that's similar to those who get their rocks off by having pain inflicted on them during sex. In other words, you're a masochist. Uncommon, but within the range of "normal".
