I was really addicted to ice chewing for years. I don't know if I would have pursued stopping except I started being around someone who really hated it and told me, all the time. I was unable to avoid the person and started waiting for my ice till I got home. Then started forgetting to buy the good ice on the way home, then got too lazy to go back out for it... I eventually just forgot about it. So, I didn't really kick the habit, it just wound down. I had to have 3 open face s'mores for my snack at night for a really long time too. That just wound down too when I started eating better and better. I guess I have issues focusing on my addictions. Ha Ha. I am currently hooked on Starbucks, which is bad because very 'spensive. I hope it goes away too.
