My mom told me people who bit their nails became ugly. I thought my looks would change, that I would grow a hiddeus nose or something. I did not understand that she meant my hands would look ugly if i contined chewing my nails

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 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.

my grandmother used to tell me that biting my nails would cause whole hands to grow in my stomach. I guess they'd have to fight for room with the watermelons growing there from swallowing seeds and all the gum I swallowed!

i used to belive that if you bite your nails,they would start growing and by the time they tuned into a finger,they would turn into bad fingers that would pick other people's noses.

Biting your fingernails leaves sharp little knives inside, that will tear up your colon on the way out, you know. So I was led to believe.

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 about 4, my mum told me that her dad bit his nails when he was a kid and that, after a while, they just gave up growing and never were a normal length again. It certainly stopped me from biting my nails, but it only occurred to me TODAY that it might not be true, so I googled it. If only I could say I was still relatively young or really dumb... but no, I'm a straight-A student in my GCSE year. If only I had been more cynical and disbelieving as a child...

I used to think when I bit my nails I would get worms. Needless to say I never had a nail-biting problem...until I found I was wrong.
