Think Selfies Are Harmless? Think Again! Meet The 19 Year-Old Who Was ADDICTED & Almost Ended His Life Because Of Them!!

kid addicted to selfies

Who’d have known that you could be addicted to taking selfies?!

Danny Bowman, a 19 year-old boy from the UK, has admitted that due to his undiagnosed Body Dysmophic Disorder, he was actually addicted to taking selfies.

So much so, that he used to take 200 A DAY and spend about 10 hours in front of the mirror!

What the WHAAAAT!!

His obsession started when an agency told him he didn’t have the right look to be a model.

So he became obsessed with taking the pictures & posting them, so much so that he dropped out of school, lost about 25 pounds, and even tried to take his own life!

However, his mother saved him when he overdosed, he’s since started seeing a therapist, and hasn’t taken a selfie in seven months!

Good for you, Danny!!!

Who knew, snapping pics of yourself could be so addictive?!? We’re just glad Danny got the care he needed, and hopefully he’ll be a subtle reminder of what NOT to do when it comes to selfies!
