Hi! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!
Your problem seems to be a psychological one. Just think logically-- pumice is NOT a part of normal diet & if you are physically healthy, you don't require it in your feedings. It may cause stomach pain & what not. Just take a New Year resolution to break this bad habit, or a psychiatric help may be needed soon.
