The question is posed. I've noticed my friend has biten off a lot of his skin from the area around the fingernails so I asked him whether he has eaten it. :tea:
I don't do this but sometimes I bite off a bit of skin from lips. I've asked some people if they eat their skin and they also replied then don't. I feel like a weirdo :tea:

I've bitten loose skin from round my fingers, yes. But never eaten it.

Also, the title of this thread sounds a lot more extreme than the content actually is lol.

Well it's definitely an... original question :p. Not really but I bite the inside of my mouth. :o

lol no. I guess if my lips are really flaky during the winter I might bite off a piece of the dead skin and spit it on an innocent bystander, but never eat it. ew

Ewww, definitely not. That's just disgusting *insert vomiting simile here*

I don't understand how it's disgusting... Some of you are just overreacting.

However, I only do it sometimes, but not intentionally. I bit the skin around my nails and I accidentally swallow it and I don't even notice really.

I think we've all done this before. Maybe without even noticing it so saying it is disgusting is overreacting in my opinion.

However I can't stand people who are biting their nails and the skin around them...

05-03-12, 19:27
i guess around the fingers nails and on my lips when they're dry unintentionally...

TRfan23
05-03-12, 19:29
Yes if it's part of my lip and flaky, especially since it has protein ;)

This question reminds me of the question: "Have you ever eaten a spider?" Most people would be disgusted but sometimes while we're sleeping, spiders do crawl into our mouths...

Everytime I lick my lips I'm ingesting dead skin. But I can't say I've ever bitten off and ate a chunk of live skin. :o

05-03-12, 19:41
Eat, as in actually getting some of your skin and swallowing it? Why would anyone do that? That's just disgusting and weird. :/

This is my confession
Actually I haven't used pair of nailscissors for over 10 years.
Not even for my toenails. I've always chewed them afer shower.
And my skin also around them, especially around my thumbnail.

I'm trying to give this up, I haven't done it for three weeks, and I do it less frequently. Let's hope I'll succeed.

I bite and eat the skin around my fingernails till they get sore - mostly due to anxiety :),

I also chew on my toenails, when I'm very bored and I have nothing to do:o:hea:
I always try to stop that and I didn't do it for about a month:o
I also bite on my lips very often.

There's nothing better than picking 3-month long toe-nails after a shower.

I can put my feet behind my neck. somehow like this http://www.katsaksyoga.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/Eka-Pada-Sirsasana-Yoga-Pose-Kat-Saks.jpg
Both of them at the same time too.
It's pretty easy for me. My mum suggested me to try yoga. Might as well try it actually one day.

Whenever my lips are dried up I start using my teeth to peel it back, and usually swallow it. But this is mostly without paying attention to it, I also eat my nails, but I never realise that I do so untill someone actually points me on it :o

On a more serious note, no. I have a bad habit of chewing my fingernails, but I don't actually eat them.

Little bits from around the tips of my fingernails, or my lips, yeah, I eat them. Not intentionally, but I might bite bits of it off if they're loose and they'll just slide down my throat. Majority of people in this thread are overreacting.

Avalon SARL
06-03-12, 09:36
When I was still a child and up till I was 16 I guess and I used to do it without any attention because I got accustomed to it and I used to eat the skin around my fingernails; but I used to get yelled at alot until I started becoming aware of it and thankfully I stopped :)

No, only on Sundays. I usually rip all my skin and organize a BBQ for my family and our neighbors.
It is usually a celebration full of joy and satisfaction.
For dessert: blueberries;).

Should have named this the Autocannibalism Thread :D

I used to chew my fingernails, and toenails (the joys of being hypermobile), especially in times of stress.

When it got past my elbows, however, I decided it was time to stop. In fact, all my posts for the last five years have been typed using my nose :pi:
