WARNING:

Hunting mushrooms can become very addictive and can lead to rapid weight loss, 

and can also cause what is commonly known as  "Mushroom Fever"!**

 

Symptoms of Mushroom Fever and Addictions:

 

  • feelings of anxiety (similar to Spring Fever, only worse!);

  • long walks in the forest seeking mushrooms, when you know that there are none to be found (it's winter!);

  • having very vivid dreams of your mushroom patches every night;

  • phoning in sick to your job or school so you can go pick mushrooms;

  • scheduling your vacations during mushroom seasons;

  • lying to everyone about where your mushroom patches are!


For help with this addiction, phone your local M.A. helpline.

Mushroom Addiction counselors are standing by to assist you!!
