The hanging skin from around my fingers. I've done it for so many years that, even when one wound heals, it leaves a perpetual scab, until I tear it open again.

I never actually have, but I’ve always had this urge to eat chalk. I haven’t tried it yet because I’m worried if I try it, it’ll become a compulsion or something lol. I usually satisfy the urge with chalk-like candies and that works well enough.

I eat bath towels. Just washed ones that have a lovely laundry smell are best.
