I always chew on plastic, like the tags from clothes or I break that plastic part from lead pencils (those are my favorite), it calms me down and especially if I have the urge to binge, chewing on plastic helps me stop. Does anyone else chew on plastic or am I the only weird one? :)

YES

ahh my mum always moans at me for it.


Leave me alone. I was alone anyway.

I have no one, everything is meaningless.

Take away the sugar-coated comfort,
tonight I'll be crooked.

Sometimes I chew on plastic forks and spoons when I'm having takeout with my bf, plus the flavor is still there so I'm enjoying as much of it as pssible before I take another dip in my food again
If humans are animals, why do people freak out when I self-harm over animal abuse?

yes, but I assumed that was because of my pica, cause I've chewed on plastic since I started eating paper.


:/ what am I even doing here

I get those plastic floss/toothpick things and chew them up.  

 

Do any of you actually swallow the plastic?

I do.

Oh yeah, I got a few sperm key rings in a sex education talk thing (they glow in the dark omfg) and they're so chewy. My mum just looked at me and shook her head like "where did I go wrong" xD

but, here’s the hot-lipped truth of it:

everyone’s sad. don’t think you’re special.

everyone’s sad and everyone’s scared

and everyone carries it around with them,

wallets spilling over with wilted daffodils and finger bones—

everyone’s got their own sludge

. but when you mix it, oh

that’s when you get into the dangerous stuff.

and you’ve done much more, than mix, dear

this is bona fide alchemy

black magic shit

you’ve made a new monster, frankenstein

and it appears it doesn’t want you to leave the house

I also am a straw chewer :blink: it's just... enjoyable XD Rubber wrist bands too.

I also used to chew on a lot more rubbery stuff when I was younger... I remember chewing away on a Barbie doll's leg :mellow: It felt nice to chew... And water bottles. My god, water bottles!
