When I was little, my dad told my mom just for fun that if she bit nails, the nails would eat up her brain...Of course I didn't bite nails, but my brother did, and that was my explonation why he was so dumb.

When I was about six or seven, i started biting my fingernails. Well one summer my Uncle came to visit, and while i was sitting on the couch in the living room one night, i was biting my nails, my uncle walked in and told me that if i didnt stop biting my nails, that when i did they would turn out like his. Then he held his hand up, and it was the sickest thing i had ever seen, the fingernail on his right hand was all black and falling off. And for six years i went believing that him biting his fingernails made them look the way they did. Well my mom told me that he got frostbite and then his finger got run over by a tractor. So its all cool!!

When I was 10 1/2 (still am now.) My mom' and dad tried to get me to stop bitting my nails.They tried "no one will like you if u keep biting your nails,Miley!" remark. they even tried "if u keep bitting ur fingers, you will be hurting little faries under there that help ur nail grow" I didn't belive in fairies at that time.so they made me get a lower retainer.I do not bite them anymore!

when i was little i bit my nails. my mom told me she had a girl in her class who bit her nails and she bit them all off. and the docter gave her special glove to keep her from eating her fingers. she also told me if i didnt stop she would make me wear a special nail polish made out of habaneros. i hated spicy stuff so i stopped biting my nails for a while....

I loved to chew things as a youngster - shirts, fingernails, you name it. At one point, I went on this hair-chewing spree - the ends of my hair were in my mouth all the time. My aunt, a nurse, told me that if I kept on chewing my hair, it would all get stick somewhere in my stomach and plug up my stomach hole. Even after two years of biology, I still can't figure out if she was lying or telling me the truth...

When i was little, i bit my nails. My parents tried everything they could to stop me. They once said my fingers would all fall off. I believed them for three months, until we had a substitute at school, one day. He pulled out a giant jar of nails and said that he stopped biting his nails when he was 47, and these are all of them!

The man had all of his fingers!

I started biting my nails day and night, saving as much as i could, and i still do.

My mum used to tell me if you accidently swallowed a bit of your nail it would go down inside you and make your appendix explode. I soon discovered this wasnt true and carried on biting my nails.

My mother told me that if I bit my nails that the skin would grow over my nails and my fingers would look like drumsticks. That was enough to scare me to death.
