I Pick My Nose And Eat It

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 45 People

    Well, This Is Something That I've Never Admitted...

    But might as well do it here. I've been picking my nose and consuming the mucus since as far back as I can remember. I think I used to not care who knew till my dad saw me in the rear-view mirror in the car and said "Hungry?" or something. My parents never stopped me or anything...

    Always Have And I Suppose I Always Will

    I started out like most anybody, without any conscious intention on picking up a habit or relegating myself to a stigmatized group. Neither concept was well formed in my view of the world, seeing as I was so young I do not recall when I started. It's just something I've always...

    Late Starter

    I never did it as a child, as I understand most did. I used to think it was disgusting when I saw anyone at school doing it. Then at college there was a guy I really liked, and after a while I noticed he picked his nose and ate it a lot... So I started seeing it as less gross...

    Not Even My Little Sister Does It.

    I've picked and eaten since I was really little. My mom and stepdad would always catch me, and even lecture me for hours about how gross it is. And yet, I still do it. It's never been a matter of liking the taste. It's a texture thing for me. It's comforting. It's something that...

    Since I Was Little To Now.

    the title says it all. I've been picking it and eating it since I was a child. Nobody knows about it and I think if they found out, it'd be all over from there. Of course I had one gf that didn't care if I did it, but that's only one person though. I'm not particularly ashamed of...

    Yummy

    I do it all the time even in public. My mommy sometimes gets mad and says it's gross but i do anyway. I also wipe my nose on my sleeve and it gets all gooey.

    Pick & Eat

    Glad to see I am not alone. My wife has openly picked her nose in front of me our entire married life, over 30 years. I on the other hand have picked and eaten all of that time only in private. I finally decided a few years ago that if she was comfortable picking in front of me...
