Are you a gum aholic?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Thi is probubly the weirdest thing I've ever asked-

Are you a gum aholic?

I am. No, seiriously, once I get started, I can't stop chewing. o_~ I'm kinda weird though, when I start, because of the taste, I have to force myself from not swalowing it. ya, then it loses it's taste and I can't stop chewing.

So, are YOU a gum aholic?

I chew gum on occasion, but once the flavor is gone, it normally goes in the trash. I can't chew it for long cause it makes me gag.

Yuck, yuck, and more yuck! I wish gum makers would go out of business. I guess you can tell I am not a gumaholic!

Wow!!, that is quite the addiction!. I will chew a pack of gum in about 2 days myself. I quit smoking back in 1998 and chewing gum is my new bad habit

I know. Its funny though it's only when I'm at work, I havent had any today at all, infact I don't even have any here! I quit smoking too nearly 2 years ago and like you I just needed something to replace it.
Also too much gum in one day does not do good things for your personal life

I've had too much dental work to be a gum-aholic

Plus it gives me gas. So I rarely chew gum..

I chew a couple of bits of gum twice a day, and dentists recommend it over here, especially after you've ate. The sugar free kind of course

The only time I chew gum is on an airline flight to minimize ear pain. After such a flight I might still find the rest of the packet in my bag a year later.

I personally think someone chomping on gum in public looks gross. It just irritates me, even if they try to chew it "gently." Rationally, I suppose there is nothing worse about gum chewing in public than drinking a soda in public, but emotionally it totally turns me off. Guess I'm just not rational.

I chew gum quite a bit - usually after lunch, or while I'm at work

twofatcats, you are perfectly rational. Smacking and chomping is thoroughly disgusting, as is slopping gum around inside the mouth. If someone comes to my house chewing gum, they have to spit it out or they are not coming in. I do not allow it in my room at work, and the boss does not allow it in the salon. (I love my boss!) My sweetie has the best line for gum chewers while he is trying to work. He will tell them to spit it out because it is a choking hazard. If they take a sharp breath while being tattooed, they could accidentally swallow it and choke, or they can smack and pop and he will choke them. Whoever invented the nasty stuff should have to spend eternity with someone smacking and popping in each ear.
