View Full Version : nose picking

02-27-14, 04:05 AM
This is going to gross some people out, but I have been picking and eating my boogers since I was a little kid. I am very good at being discreet and nobody has caught me since I was a kid. I think they taste good and I have always rationalized it as a mechanism for strengthening my immune system. In fact I think it might be a natural and usefull behaviour but obviously the social implications are not very god and I think this might be a form of nervous habit for me. Its not like I ever pick the skin in there or anything though. Anybody else do this or have any thoughts? I am thinking about trying to stop this habit especially if I want to have a female companion.

Had a boyfriend who did this constantly .. not the eating part, he put them various places which always upset me.

Do you do it when you are nervous ? Or thinking about something in particular or is it just something you do without thinking?

A friend does this. I wonder if it's related to anxiety.
