When I was little, a friend told me that every bitten nail would turn into a diamond during digestion. Well, that same day (in fact during the following days) I... well... after long, stinky, exhaustive examinations of my by-products I had it up to with eating my nails!!

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 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 used to belive that if you bit your nails, your body didnt like it so it would grow your hands on your feet instead from then on.

As a former nail-biter,a childhood friend told me that if I kept biting them,they would stick to the lining of my stomache and I'd need surgery. She swore that her uncle had this happen to him. (What finally mde me quit though was wearing nail polish!)

I use to believe that if I kept biting my nails they would all fall out. my parents had a friend that somehow did not have any finger nails and they would show me his hands to put the scare in me and say he lost his nails because he wouldn't stop biting them. even though I believed them for some reason it didn't work all that good cause I still was biting them but maybe not as often.

When I was little my daycare told me that if I bit my nails when I was nervous I would get worms in my stomach. I believed that for like 3 or 4 years and then one day I told my friends and they laughed at me and told me I was funny.

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.

when i was younger, i bit my nails like crazy. my mom bought everything known to make me stop biting but nothing worked. one summer, i was at my cousins house, sitting on the couch biting my nails. he sat down beside me and said that if i didnt stop then my fingers were gonna fall off. i stoped shortly after.
