My Aunt used to tell me that if I kept bitting my nails a plant would grow from it. She even told me a cousin of mine had a plant on her fingers that she had to water.

I'm a grown up (mostly) now. But I have bitten my nails for as long as I could remember. My parents really didn't say too much about it. What REALLY bothered them was me sucking my thumb.

For all my life, I got bad habit of biting my nails. In 5th grade, I was told that if I keep biting them, I would die of nails in my stomach.. I believed it so I stopped. But few weeks later, I started again and nothing happened.

I was taught that if i bit my nails that they would get down in my stomach and make my appendix burst. I still don't bite my nails and if i ever do I become very worried for hours.

Once, when i was younger, i went with my parents to visit my uncle in the hospital. His friend was there, but his friend only had 2 or 3 fingers on each hand. He showed me his hands and said "This is what happens if you bite your nails!" Needless to say, i never bit my nails, out of fear of losing my fingers!

I always bit my nails really bad when I was little. One day my cousin, who is much older then I am, was at my house and seen me. He told me that there was poisen on my fingers and my fingernails and if I continued to bite them that the poisen would go down into my stomach and then spread throughout my body. He had me scared to death! I would forget what he said and bite my nails and then start crying cause I thought I was going to die.

I was told by a student in my class that biting your nails causes them to get stuck on their way down to your stomach in the event that you swallow them.
It seemed logical as the esophogus constricts to cause food to go down to your stomach. So I thought when it would constrict, it would stab itself with the ends of the fingernail, causing it to get stuck.
I believe this until I was about 11 years old.

I used to believe that if you bit your nails, your nails will grow stronger. So I started biting my nails alot, since they were very skinny. Until one day, my best friend asked my why I kept on doing that, and I answeered. Well, she just started cracking up. Now, I paint my nails so I won't bite them!

When I was young my grandfather told me that when I met someone that I really cared for, I would stop biting my nails. Five years ago, I met a wonderful woman, and I finally stopped. I am 60 now.

My parents used to tell me that if I chewed my fingernails, little bugs would come crawling out from underneath them. What they didn't count on was that tomboys love bugs...

I was once told that there is the same amount of dirt under ones finger nails as there is on a toilet seat, so biting your nails is like licking a toilet seat. i still get this image in my mind every now and then ... strangly enough it doesnt seem to stop me

I was a nailbiter, and my mom told me the nails were forming a sharp ball in my stomach, and when big enough, it was going to cut my stomach open, and I would bleed to death........which made me bite my nails even more! Gads! What a terrible thing to tell a child. sheesh!
