Hello everybody,

I found this phrase written on a Facebook profile, but can't understand the meaning:

"<name> is feeding her new fig habit"

Can you help me in comprehending what is she doing?

Thank you
Lucia

    "To feed a habit" means, more or less, to do what is necessary to satisfy the demands of a habit (or addiction). "Fig habit" seems to mean simply a need to eat figs—but sometimes unusual phrases may have metaphorical meanings.
