I used to eat chalk. it started in primary school I eat it for a dare and it tasted good but I pretended it didn't. then I told my friend (boy) and when he went to detention he used to sneak me some then I would consume it at home. when I went to high school I told my friend and me and her stole tons of chalk from the art room and we would go to my house or hers and eat some! my favourite was the black chalk because it had a metal taste. I kept doing that until the start of 3rd year because I didn't choose art as a subject. so I would go in to the city and buy some from local shops, preferably crayola white and sometimes the coloured! it was so tasty! and about 2 months ago I stopped because when I would go to do a number 2 the poo would stick to my toilet and I would get constipated. so after Christmas I started consuming coal as I have an open fire, I always take my time eating it as I like to find pieces of coal that aren't rock hard. I'm trying my hardest to stop but I can't. my mum is taking me to the doctors to get my bloods done because she thinks I'm low on iron, so hopefully if I get iron pills I will stop my addiction:)

I still eat chalk. I tried to stop but it didn't work out. I'd just go back after being deprived for so long. But now my face feels funny. Anyone else having this?

Im so Glad I'm not the only one. I started when I was younger with dry wall, and then got worse when I started breaking my bathroom tiles. But i noticed it started making my stomach hurt so I went with chalk which is tastier and easier to get. 😅 Nobody knows and it's kinda embarrassing. Especially in times when I don't have chalk (like today) and I'm in a grumpy mood cause I NEED to have some.

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that Crayola's large colored sidewalk chalk has had some awful tasting ingredient added that makes it... sour? I can't describe the taste but even airing it out doesn't help! I was forced to eat the waxy square sticks that taste sweet. They aren't crayons, they are still chalk ("washable") but they don't taste anywhere near as good as decent, wonderful colored (yes! The more natural the color, the more earthy the taste!) sidewalk chalk! I hate to change brands because with Crayola you know it's non-toxic but the dollar store stuff might come from china and have lead or whatnot in it...

Anybody else notice the huge disgusting flavor change? I wonder if they did it on purpose???

My mom knows I eat chalk but won't let me because she read I causes intestinal blockage. How can I convince her otherwise

Hey wow!
its so cool to see i'm not the only one. My friends think i'm crazy, but i really cant help it. It is especially had for me because i'm still on school, I mean the place filled with chalk ! Also my mom was a teacher and i always ended up stealing her chalk. I don't eat the colored ones, because i'm afraid of any chemicals it may contain. I always like to check if the box says non-toxic, because I've read that it may lead to poisoning.

i also eat chalk ilike the cryola big colored ones i like all the colors except the balck and brown ones. i just like the texture and the feeling in my mouth and since school is out i cant get any more my stash ranout and i cant buy more cause i live far from a store i could walk there but it will raise suspicions in my family no one knows i eat chalk and and we all go to the store im scared they are going to see me buy it please help im trying to stop. and im scared when school begins im going to get addictated again helpp meeeeeee

I started eating chalk when I was younger does anyone know if it can affect me from having kids????????????

I share the same taste as most of you here.. I am a mother of 2 kids now and i eat up their chalk begore they use it! Well i tried to find a substitute so that i do not set a bad example for my kids by eating their chalk. Nuts are very similar to the consistency of chalk, dry clay, etc.. Especially peanuts, walnuts, pine nuts, almonds..mix the nuts with some raisins to have a better total result as you chew.
Lucky that i am not allergic to nuts!!

I am 13 and I am recently addicted to eating crayola chalk. I eat it when I am bored or by my self. I love the texture and taste. I ate a how box of it and now I don't have it. I am almost going insane! What should I do? I want to go to a grocery store to buy some but I don't want anyone to find out! What should I do?

I feel your pain....

i started eating sand when i was 3 or 4 years old and i remember liking it. i remember eating white dirt throughout my childhood also. once i was 11 doing art in high school, i started eating the grey air drying clay. it was sooo delicious! especially when it's dry, dusty, crispy and it melts in my mouth. once i got in university and having my own money at 18, i would order 12kg of clay and i'd dry it out in bits, or even bake em' like cookies in the oven lol. just like cookies taste great with milk, my clay cookies tasted great with strawberry yazoo! i tried giving it up because i started looking like a zombie. but i remember when i was without it and just thinking about it would make my mouth water intensively, i would crave so bad i'd go crazy. i now eat chalk, which is less aggressive than clay but still has that plain dry taste i like. i don't think i'm as bad as i used to be as i can go for a while without chalk, but i do believe it's because i have pica because i had to take 3 iron tablets a day when i was in high school...but i much preferred the raw iron in clay........

I love the taste of Crayola white anti dust chalk. I bought two boxes from Walmart this week and was very dissapointed when took a bite and discover that it taste different. Im desperate because it was the only chalk i like.

Same thing happened to me but i'm such an addicted moron i ate it anyway

I used to buy the 52 count crayola chalk, but then they changed the formula...I going insane looking for substitute.

im 17 & i have been eating drywall; It started like 2 years ago for me idk why i even started to do this; White crayola chalk was the best for me, but that i couldnt always buy it so i started to eat drywall; i have a huge hole in my closet and my dad a contractor so its kind of easy to get it; i stopped completely this year bc it was making me sick; my hair not grow and i used to cry bc i didnt feel normal. But your not alone. Im trying to find foods that have the same consistancy as the drywall bc i hate the taste only the texture is what i like.

I crave Crayola's Anti Dust White Chalk. I will make an apptment with my doctor next week to check my blood cells. I am so grateful that I am not alone.

Check out this site for people who eat Clay, Chalk, Earth etc...

Please dont let anyone make you fell un normal.
Dirt/Clay eating has been practiced for centuries by many cultures around the world and is normal.

Find a safe source and eat away.

I love the taste of earth as its like rain on pavement on a hot summer day!

Many sources of good earth in Georgia, California, Arizona, Alabama, and many other places.

The practice is to source the earth deep beneathe the top soil. Construction sites are good places to find good clay. Also baking in the oven or microwave to dry is good as well.

If you cant find a edible source where you live then buy it on line.

All things in moderation. Too much ice cream can make you sick. Too much water can make you sick.

Salt is a mineral mined from the earth but because someone packaged it and put it in a grocery store its more accepatable. Supplements are minerals, minerals come from the earth.

You can get some of the same minerals from eathing Clay.

I cant find any place to buy natural chalk in the uk can anyone help me please

email me at LeslieCinGa@yahoo.com
I know a lady in the UK who can provide what you need.

my nouth is watery now. i crave it so much and love to hide and eat. that is kind of achievement i feel :-p i like to eat n i dont like to eat so much at one shot but yea i can finish a pack in 3-4days, woohoo i used to love it as child n cant help if i smell it or now when i see you guys talking about it.

After reading this article, and realising that I was only eating a small amount of chalk in comparison to many others, I made an appointment with my Dr and she sent me for a blood test. It turns out that I had an Iron and a Folate deficiency and it was causing my red blood cells to become shrunken and misshapen. She has put me on the right medication and in less than a week I have stopped craving chalk! If you have not been tested please do see a Dr ASAP, as it could be your bodies way of telling you that you have a real problem, and it can be overcome with rebalancing your diet too. The chalk in itself is not dangerous but the red blood cells need to be the right shape and size to do their job in healing and clotting and getting oxygen to the body, so please do get that checked out. If your Iron and Folate are normal then please do enjoy your chalk.
