    Default Worst craving :(

    This is horrible and its the worst craving i could ever have.. and strange..

    I cant stop wanting the smell of petrol!!!!

    I dont know if im lacking something in my diet or whats going on. I wont succumb to it at all, even to the point of trying not to even fill up the car..

    Im no druggie or anything like that either so please dont automatically think im someone who this is normal for.

    What other weird craving have you had?

    Ha ha unless someone has been thru one of these cravings they have no idea how strong they can be :-)

    Mine was Dettol handwash, I wanted to seriously drink it (i obviously never did) The smell was amazing & no joke i was putting it on my hands at least 10 times a day just so I could smell it.
