Beach Bum Tanning Addiction

Addiction to tanning is one of the downfalls that although acknowledged as a problem, is fortunately not a common thing. The feel good syndrome just takes over common reasoning.

An unfortunate situation was revealed with the arrest of a New Jersey mother, Patricia Krentcil, who was a 'convicted' tanner. She was arrested after her 5-year-old daughter sustained burns from time she had spent in a tanning booth with her mother. The following video illustrates her addiction.
