Others have already said it but just go schedule an appointment with a physician and tell him you're eating paper and he'll run some tests to see if you're missing some specific nutrients. It's not a big deal if you go it could become a big deal if you continue to ignore it. But screw your friend that is not ok to say to you even if it was to make you take care of yourself. Sexual assault is not something you threaten someone with.1

What you have is a form of pica, an eating disorder which causes you to crave and eat non-food items, sometimes because your body is lacking a vitamin of some kind. The technical term for paper eating is xylophagia.
The paper is harmless, but this disorder is often seen in pregnant people, or those with mental instability or imbalance. Even if you don't have any of these things, it can get worse, and you could seriously harm yourself. I'd consider seeing a doctor. If you live in the US, try and see if you can't find a free clinic.0
