Question Nose digging - just a habit or an addiction?

We have had some discussions on this topic before. You can check these links here 1) 2) 3)

I always wonder, while I dig my nose offcourse , whether nose digging is a mere habit which can be stopped or becomes an addiction?

To be honest, many times, when I pull out a really complex booger which is part dry and part semi-dry, it gives great pleasure to pull it out and notice the change in air flow through the nose.

Ur Exactttly right that it gives a great pleasure to pull that stuff out, but tell U this is a bad habit which becomes addiction easily & then really there r a few chances of cuming back to normal life ( Im getting a bit in unneccesarically fine pointing here )

Yes. The habit can become an annoying (to others) addiction.

Best is to enjoy such pleasures privately than in public.

Heck even the US President does it:

Re: Nose digging - just a habit or an addiction?

When you subconsciously nose dig in office, how do you ensure that none of it gets on your keyboard??

Stick it below the keyboard, that way none of it will be on the keyboard, elementary, dear watson.

Re: Nose digging - just a habit or an addiction?

According to me, This is bad habit and slowly Habit becomes into addiction. If you pick your nose digging in private place then it's no problem but if you keep doing it publicly then it's time you got it sorted out or may be you have to suffer problems like social embarrassment,nose bleeding.

Re: Nose digging - just a habit or an addiction?

Fact is, this is not restricted to humans. Ever seen animals do it? Hint: Their tongues are longer. So what is the criteria for a certian behavior to be called a habit or an addiction. My take :

Habit : I do it often but if i dont, then its not the end of the world. My pipes might get clogged and i might sound funnier than a dog sneeze but what the hay. As long as you dont get a sight of it..right...now who's with me... (raises a hand expecting a manly clap....)

Addiction : If i dare stop my fingy from exploring the riches of my breathing apparatus then god will smite me with vengance. Ofcourse, the world will come to an end blah blah blah. Hi, My name is <insert name> and i am addicted to hoarding boogers. ( Everyone in the anonymous club - "Haaai <insert name>"

I conclude that depending on the species and the being hisself, nasal mining can be classifed as one of the grooming methodologies but let the record show that if the being has been classifed as a par species then its a habit and for all sub species it be shown as an addiction.

So it shall be written and so it shall be done.

you need to line your keyboard up with paper towels before you begin excavation. that way you will know the amount of gold that you've mined for the day and it is also easy to store the bounty away in a safe place.

Re: Nose digging - just a habit or an addiction?

My intense research on this subject brought me to this site which listed the various categories of nose picking. (ok i didnt have anything better to do and i have waaaay too much time on hand so there....).

Deep Salvage Pick
Reminiscent of the deep sea exploration to find the Titanic ship, you probe deep into your nasal passages.

Utensil Pick
When fingers, and even your thumb, just aren't enough to get the job done to your satisfaction.

Extra Pick
When you have been digging for nuggets hours upon hours and suddenly you hit the jackpot! Excitement only equalled by winning the lottery.

Depression Pick
When you're sad, and the only way to fill the void is to pick so hard and fast that the agony overcomes your feeling of remorse and depression.

Pick A Lot
What we would call abnormal amounts of picking. Anything in the three digit realm we consider a bit too much for a 24 hour time frame.

Kiddie Pick
When you're by yourself and you uninhibitedly twist your forefinger into your nostril with childlike joy and freedom.
And the best part is, there's no time limit!

Camouflaged Kiddie Pick
When, in the presence of other people, you wrap your forefinger in a tissue, then thrust it in deep and hold back
the smile.

Fake Nose Scratch
When you make believe you've got an itch but you're really trolling the nostril edge for stray boogers.

Making A Meal Out Of It
You do it so furiously, and for so long, you're probably entitled to dessert.

Surprise Pickings
When a sneeze or laugh causes snot to come hurling out of your nose, and you have to gracefully clean it off your shirt.

Autopick
The kind you do in a car, when no one's looking. Also can mean automatic pick, the one you do when your not even thinking about it, at work, while talking to a co-worker, during a meeting....

Pick Your Brains
Done in private, this is the one where your finger goes in so far, it passes the septum.

Pick And Save
When you have to pick it quickly, just when someone looks away, and then you pocket the snot so they don't catch on to what you did.

Pick And Flick
Snot now becomes a weapon against your sister and others in range around you.

Pick And Stick
You wanted it to be a "Pick and Flick," but it stubbornly clings to your fingertip.

Pipe Cleaner Pick
The kind where you remove a piece of snot so big, it improves your breathing by 90%.


So what's in your pocket !!!!
