Gum Gum Gum Gum - August 22nd 2013, 03:20 AM

Hey lovelies

Is anyone else here as addicted to gum as I am? I usually go through about 10 sticks a day, one gets bad I throw it away and can't stand to be without it for more than 5 minutes or so. I chew it like a maniac, literally I'm smacking away at it and people say its really annoying. I feel like I'm suffocating and I feel like sobbing when I don't have it in my mouth all of the sudden... this literally happened over the course of a week or so and now its just... it doesn't go away.

Is it like, unhealthy? I try to chew mint gum... like, teeth wise, health wise, is it bad? I guess I should also say that since this has really gotten bad, I haven't been eating hardly anything. I've basically been running off of gum and water the last couple of days.... also, I chew it to relieve my nerves but at the same time my nerves are only getting worse

Ugh. Okay, I have a lot of questions here, but I'm just looking for someone who can relate. Like, is this normal? At all?

Hey, Tay

I chew gum a lot, too. I think that and the water tends to make you feel full. It took me about three or so years of that and my ED before I started getting attached to it like that. Health wise, for your teeth, it is really good. It creates saliva and it keeps your teeth cleaner than a person who doesn't chew as much gum as you and I do.
