    whenever i see an object i always get the urge to chew it. usually i just chew on my chewys to help prevent myself from chewing something that isn’t a chewy but sometimes i still end up chewing the object i’m not supposed to because it looks so satisfying to chew but sometimes it ends up being a mistake

    one mistake i remember was when i first got a switch i put a game cartridge in my mouth and learned the hard way they put something on the cartridges to make the cartridges taste terrible to prevent people from putting them in my mouth.

    has anyone ever had the urge to chew something that isn’t technically supposed to be chewed and regretted their decision the second you chewed or put it in your mouth?

    Once I had an urge to eat a book. It was my Geology book. I am not sure why. But that was the only non-edible. Do you have pica perchance?

    My flatmate bit her phone. Now she has to put up with the cracks in the screen until she gets a new one.

    Now I only chew on non-chewable things which society has for some reason deemed more socially acceptable, like the ends of pens, and my nails, but throughout childhood and early teens I had a bit of an obsession with chewing on my hair, leaves, and paper.

    Not an urge to chew, but when I was a child and teen, I had this sense that if I did not swollow, I was going to choke, to the point, that I would panic, if I could not take that gulp.

    I only do this with squishy things or slime. Also, I get the overpowering urge to chew on Orbeez or those little Febreeze balls.
