Well, there is a disorder called Pica, which results in the uncontrollable desire to eat non-food substances, such as chalk or dirt, Pica is commonly caused by a mineral deficiency, but you should see a doctor about this chalk ingestion issue, as it could be more serious.

How can you stop eating chalk?

I am not sure why you are eating chalk in the first place. Eating items not usually considered food is called pica. This website is quite good. I suggest a visit to a physician to ensure you are not suffering any medical condition which would cause a craving for this unusual substance. If nothing comes to light then some psychological insight might be helpful to help break the habit. I would figure that eating the multi colored pill type candy pictured here; would satisfy the chalk eating experience.
