Have you ever had a hanger snap for some reason? Whether it was the hook part of it of just in half?

Well, when that happens, I'm actually super happy about it. Because you can chew on the edges of the broken part for a super long time before it actually breaks off (not recommending this)

I also eat the little silicone buttons on remote controls, and the edges of plastic cups which is why we had to get rid of all of them and get glass ones.

I've always eat bottle caps, cupcake wrappers, crayons, erasers, pencils, and the plastic part of thumbtacks.

I've been doing this since I was very young. I'm not sure if I have pica, but I finally found this topic and maybe wanted opinions..

If you need reasons as to WHY I do it, it's either when I'm stressed (like how people use hands on methods like stress balls) I eat things instead, or sometimes I don't even realize I'm doing it.

Oh, I've also eat Styrofoam and stickers..

I eat all of those things too! I don’t understand it and I have literally had my doctor tell me it’s weird and she dosnt know what to do. I do it when I’m stressed but a lot of other times too. I just like the taste/texture so much I do it without thinking like chewing gum
