I heard somewhere that chewing gums make the contrary effect: you inhale too much air, thus gaining weight. I don't know if that's true, though.

I meant is that there are some girls who are afraid that eating would make them gain weight; therefore, they choose to chew gums. Gums don't contain much calories. Only about 5-15 calories and no fats. After a while this habit is considered as a psychological disorder, for a girl is being too obsessed with her body figure; she could literally damage it by choosing gums as her priority nutrients. I've seen some girls chew gums all day and eat nothing. It's sick!

When little, I used to love them but once I had a nightmare about them, I don't eat them often.
I fell asleep and I forgot to spit it out. Then I dreamed that I was choking with it. It was horrible.
I think my parents were glad that I stopped chewing them because my chew gums were stuck everywhere. I'd leave them under the table, on one side of my plate, under my bed, etc. :oops:

During my two last years in high school, my class timetable was from 8am to 2:30pm. There was a time when I used to have a chewing gum right before starting the class at 8 and didn't throw it away until I went home at 2:30.

Gross or what? :D

Kind of.
Sometimes I'd start chewing gum in the morning and when it was lunch time, I'd put it on my side of my plate and when I was done eating, I'd put it into my mouth again.
Grosser??
I guess I just wanted to eat only one piece of gum per day and make them last longer. :oops:
