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)

This actually applies to my brother. My grandma said that if you keep on biting your nails and eat them, you will grow worms in your stomach.

When I was about 5, I constantly bit my nails. My mother told me if one was biting thier nailes, they were nervous. I had reason too... until nine. I kept it up til I got my braces.

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.

My mum used to tell me that if i kept biting my nails I would never grow up to be a lady. I took this literally and never bit my nails again fearing that if I did I'd always be a little kid.
To this day I still don't bite my nails - it's just yuck!

I used to bite my nails a lot. Every time I got a stomachache, I would imagine the little crescents of my nails poking into the lining of my stomach. Unfortunately, I could never stop biting my nails.

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!

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.

To try to get me to stop biting my nails, my Dad told me that fingernails don't digest, they just sit in the bottom of your stomach and collect there, and he knew of this guy who had bitten his nails so much that he had to have an operation. I kept biting anyway...
