I just posted this in another PICA thread but sjdhd: I chew notebook paper mostly. I haven’t tried other types but I figure I wouldn’t like toilet paper because it’s too thin and I might not like card stock because it’s too thick. Notebook paper feels right. I sometimes swallow it but only smaller pieces.

I don’t know if I’d say I’d crave it. But...if I ever have some of it, say, the binding part to a notebook that is left over, it is hard to not put it in my mouth. And I enjoy it either becoming a ball or ‘melting’.

I ate it as a teenager but I think it was more to do with sensory issues than anything else (I would chew everything, and paper is super easy just to swallow once you've chewed it up)


i just want to disappear

I used to eat paper all the time when I was in middle/early high school. I don't know why I started it or even why I did it, I just tried it one day and kept doing it.

 

I would do exactly as you do, tear off a little piece, roll it into a ball and chew on it (kind of like gum) and eventually swallow it. Sometimes I would opt for the little stringy paper that gets left behind when you tear a page out of a notebook and eat that (if that makes sense?)

 

I never associated this with pica though, but it makes sense.

 

I do this all the time! A lot of the time in the same ways too!

a few years ago there was a trend of people doing this in my class at school.

 

we weren't allowed to chew gum, so people would chew paper instead, and when the teacher would say "are you chewing gum?" people would reply 'No it s paper' and they wouldn't get into trouble over as there was no rule saying you couldn't chew paper. 

 

soon most people would chew/eat paper

Imma necrobump this one instead of making a new thread....

 

I used to chew on notebook paper and toilet paper when I was a kid, and I had mostly forgotten all about it. I had a dream that I was doing it again as an adult and it made me wonder why? I mostly just chewed it until about half of it "dissolved," then I would spit out whatever was left. Very, very rarely I would swallow it too.

 

Idk, it's really weird that I've started thinking about it again.


hungry to bed, hungry to rise, makes a girl a smaller size...
