I'm seventeen, and up until very recently (less than a year ago) I bit my nails and had been ever since I was very little. Then I had a kidney stone and since I had no idea what actually caused it, I had myself convinced that it was biting on my nails my whole life that was the problem. Turned out that it wasn't the problem, but I stopped biting them anyway--just in case.

I thought that when you bit your nails, and if you swallowed them, there was a little box at the back of your neck where they were stored. If you bit them too much, the box would explode, and that was why I thought you shouldn't bite your nails.

When my friend caught me biting my nails, she said that a few years ago, a girl died because she bit her nails and skin on her fingers and swallowed them. They got stuck in her throat and fomed a huge ball that she choked on and made her die. I didn't beleive her but sometimes when i bite my nails, I think about what she told me and stop straight away; but it doesn't always work!

Cats RULE!!! (don't know why I said that)

top belief!

My grandmother installed such a believe that if I kept biting my finger-nails that I'd grow a hand in my stomach, that when I had the flu at school I told the teacher that this is what I thought it the problem was.

When i was younger my grandpa would tell me that if i bit my nails then they would attach themselves to the lining of my stomach and make me very sick. He told me he had a friend that bit her nails and she became very sick and was hospitalized. When the doctor went to operate her stomach was full of nails and he couldnt help her so she died. Now I am 16 and I know that is not true. I wish i would have believed it because i still bite my nails.

I've had the habit of biting my nails since I was little, and one day, my friend's mom told me that if I kept biting them, a huge claw would grow out of my stomach. Surprisingly, that didn't stop me.

I never bit my nails, because I never wanted to and also because when I was 5 my friend told me I would grow animal claws if I didn't bite my nails.(He was trying to make me start the habit but it had the opposite effect... claws are cool!)

I always bit my nails when I was younger, until my grandfather caught me once and told me that all the nails were collecting in my stomach and would stay there forever until the ball got so big that it would cut through my stomach and the rest of my insides....

I stopped biting my nails.

When I was in fourth grade, my mom told me that if you bite your nails, you can get a very bad disease. I stopped biting my nails. I'm 16 now and still don't know if its true or not.
