I enjoy drinking my own urine because it smells like champagne and tastes like it, but there’s one food I’ll never eat again.
A MUM has admitted to being addicted to drinking her own urine, which she claims tastes exactly like champagne.
Carrie, 53, from Colorado, has been sipping her own pee for four years and admits that she prefers it to water.
Almost all of Carrie’s urine has made it back into her body over the last four years, with the mother consuming up to five glasses of urine per day, totaling 3406 litres.
“I like warm pee,” she says on TLC’s My Strange Addiction.
“My urine has a different smell depending on what I eat; it tastes a little different today than it did four years ago.”
“Sometimes it’s salty, other times it’s champagne.”
“You can taste different things going through your body; there are some foods I don’t like to eat anymore because they don’t taste good when recycled.”
“Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables, but I won’t eat it any longer because it makes my urine taste awful.”

Carrie has since expanded her use of urine, no longer just drinking it but also using it for a variety of self-care purposes.
“I use urine as a tooth paste because I believe it whitens my teeth from the inside out,” she explains.
Carrie also claims that ‘aged urine’ makes a’really good’ lotion replacement when she bathes in it, and she dabs it under her eyes, in her ears, and combs it through her hair.

“And your kidneys have filtered it out with great care, so why would you drink it?”
According to Amanda, surviving solely on urine would put people at risk of serious nutrient deficiencies.
“If you don’t get enough of any nutrient, vitamin, or mineral,” she continued, “you will develop a deficiency disease.”
As a result, if you use urine to replace foods, you’re more likely to develop a variety of health issues rather than cure any ailments.
In the belief that it is good for her body, the mother engages in some painful practices such as pouring urine into her eyes and ‘nasally’ drinking it.
Cassie, on the other hand, is worried about her mother’s health.
“Is this really the best thing for her to be doing to help her health improve?” she asks.
“I’m just afraid, and I’d like my mother to come with me.”
Following her daughter’s advice, she…
