I chew on plastic

Hello, I have a habit of chewing on the plastic rings around the top of pop bottles, sometimes even the caps and the little things inside the caps... I was wondering if anyone else does it and if I could like, dull my teeth, sharpen them, get a disease or something like that. Thanks.

Like you said its a habit.but if you are eating the plastic you may have pica.Look it up and see if its you.

I think its normal to an extent. I used to chew on pencaps a lot, until I got a laptop. I don't know what kind of negative health effects that could have. I am the Walrus (nice beetles song reference) said something about Pica.. I'd look into that, just ot be safe.

I do this whenever I can, but it's just an odd habit that pisses my family off at holidays and shit, so who cares?

I do this, and eat the plastic and I don't think its normal or healthy. I have always assumed since its just passing through it won't do damage to my internals, but over the last year or so I have been trying to stop and have now got to the stage where I only chew and spit it out, and even that is only rarely

That is so wierd, I honetsly was chewing the little ring off of a bottle of water when I read this. I do it constantly... Most of the time I don't even know. It isn't pica as others suggested, because that would imply that you had a "Craving" to chew on it. So, if its an incidental thing that you happen to chew it when you have a bottle of water/etc, then don't be worried. If you find yourself looking around the house for a pop bottle so you can chew the ring, or if you purchase water/pop just to chew the rings, then something either medically or psychologically can be going on.
