    Got a kick out of this and just thought I'd share.  Every once in awhile, I get requests to answer questions for journalists but this is the first time I've actually had an article written up.   I wrote about my pagophagia experience and after finding my story here, I was asked for an interview.  I am really hoping it helps people to get checked if they are ice chewers. … Trnsprtr_2

        Hi Cary - I am so excited for you, as I have never known anyone who achieved such a feat. Cosmopolitan is so popular, and I am sure the story will help addicted folks. Chewing ice does sound bad for your teeth, especially, so congrats on your story and for kicking the habit. Good luck.

          Now I'm trying to get her interested in writing on misdiagnosed miscarriages. That would mean the world to me!

            Misdiagnosed miscarriages? Please do explain.

            I had one situation where I was pretty sure I was pregnant and miscarried out of my own sheer force of will before it went beyond a few days...but no way to prove it.

        What a good article. Congratulations. I know a lady at work who has this problem. I will mention it to her.

        So did you melt the ice on your husband's chest before you ate it? lol Oh Cosmo, you so silly.

      Congrats! I was an ice chewer in my younger years.  I don't know why I stopped. Maybe it was the taste of our water today!

      I was never an ice chewer, but I have friends that are!  One friend in particular chewed ice through each of her pregnancies..

      I chew ice when it's in my drink, but not otherwise.

        Not really, it just means the article ranks well on Google -that's probably where they found it.

          Well, it means they read at least one Hubpage smile  Marissa is correct though.  With the keyword 'pagophagia', my page comes up fourth on a Google search.  It does fairly well with Google but, really, how many people are searching for pagophagia smile
