My mother told me that when I sniffed up to clear my nose, the snots went down the back of my throat and would stick to my chest, making me ill. When I asked how things that I ate, which went down my throat, didn't stick to my chest I was told that "that's different and doesn't make people ill". I was certainly more careful not to sniff up, but thought it perfectly acceptable after that to pick my nose and eat it!

somehow i came to believe that snot was a finite resource and that
eventually one would run out. and since i realized that boogers
were concentrated snot, i very conscientiously re-cycled my boogers
per oral until my emasculating older sisters reminded me what a fat
head i possessed. after that i became a picker-flicker and nose-
blower, hoping my hat size would be reduced thereby. it worked,
but probably because the salt reduction reduced edema.

i belied for several years that if you picked your nose too much the buggers turned to glue and your finger would get stuck, and need to be cut of.

When I was little my mum used to shout at me for picking my nose and eating it, but my big cousin told me that it was ok to eat your snot cos it just went back up your nose again, so that is what I kept telling my mum when she shouted at me.

I was afraid of picking my nose, because I believed (and vaguely recall being told) that snot was fly poop. Because, (of course!) when flies shat in the air or in our vicinity, it somehow got ingested through our nostrils. :S

I used to believe that if I picked my nose, it would stretch and become big enough to serve as a tunnel for a train! Although this was scary, it just got more tempting to pick my nose.

When I was real little and used to pick my nose I would cover what I was doing with my other hand, I convinced myself no one could see, until one day my dad asked me why I was digging for gold, I realized they could tell what I was doing.

I used to believe that sticking my finger up my nose made me invisible and I was so angry at this girl who sat behind me because she had super-powers that allowed her to see me.

When I was young a cyst grew on my face. I was told that it was probably because I picked my nose and rubbed it on my face. I had the cyst removed in the 5th grade, but I'm still in therapy now.

My mother once told me that i shouldn't sniff to clear my nose, because the boogers would go into my brain. After that, i was scared to do it, even though i didn't believe her.
