Eating ice is fun :) I like to eat it too. It should definitely not do you any harm as its just cold water. And its actually meant to be quite soothing if you suffer from motion sickness. But im no doctor, so i cant say for sure if its bad or not. My guess however is that it is ok.

However, are getting ice cravings? Do you feel you have the need to eat ice everyday, all day? I don't crave it, i just like eating it if i have it in my drink.
