I eat very slow compared to most people. Is it a problem ?

this affects my social life. i wont eat in restaurants, or don t like to eat in public because of this. maybe i m afraid to swallow a lot of food, not sure exactly. i do get a lot of flem in my throat , and a few years ago i do remember choking on something and thought i was going to die. even when i stuff my mouth and eat super fast (for me), other people who take their time finish before me.
