When I was 7 or 8 I had a terrible habit of biting my nails. One day my aunt said "If you keep biting your nails, the nail will get stuck in your stomach and you will have to have surgery right away before you die." I stopped.

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 little, my Mothjer told me that if I chewed my nails, they would grow and grow in my stomach. You'd think this would have put me off, but I have never had unbitten nails - and I'm now 41!!

My dad and his mom told me when i was 5 that when you bit your fingernails and swollow them that fishes would grow in your stomach. And since that day i never bit my fingernails ever again. I found out that it was a lie when i asked my mom and she told me that it was fake but i still shouldnt bite my fingernails b/c it is bad for your health. That was a lie too.

When i was younger, i used to ALWAYS bite my nails! One time my mum said that people who bite their nails, aren't allowed chocolate, ever again! I
stopped biting my nails. When i found out it was
false, i started again! That'll teach my mum to mess
with me!

my mom used to tell me that i shouldn't bite my fingernails because there were worms under them. i'd always thought she meant that the worms would stick out from under my fingernails and squirm around. i found out years later that kids can indeed get li'l tapeworms from ingesting the dirt under the fingernails. yum!

My daughter used to bite her fingernails. Nothing I did would make her stop. One day I found a picture of the Venus de Milo and told her that she'd end up like that if she kept biting her nails. Unfortunately, that didn't work for very long either.

When I was in first grade I used to bite my nails (I don't anymore)...My mom's EX Boyfriend told me that if I bit my nails and swallowed the nail it would grow in my stomache and I would explode (of course he said the same things about watermelon seeds), but I still believed him.....maybe that's why I don't bite my nails anymore?

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!

I use to think the dirt under you nails was food. And the different smells from the crud was different and higher grade dirt food. I as live on a farm and my father watches cows and i thought he would milk bulls.
