I really liked blues but the problem for me is bending on the 3 string!
At 5 and 7 fret the wound 3 string is literally eaten after a week or so!
Is it a natural thing or my bending technique is not right?
Is it possible to use bottleneck technique instead of bending?

depends how much you bend. you may also want to switch from a wound g string to a plain steel g string.

You mean to use a string for electric guitar or you mean that there are plain steel strings for acoustic. And I bend a lot. But I am not a professional and I am playing for an hour or so every day. If I am a pro I should change string every day after 7 hours of playing.
G- string doesn't breaks it remains on it's inner core and fuzzes when played.

you can get plain steel g strings - they sound slightly different to the wound strings. and they're easier to bend.

You can get unwound G strings for acoustic as mentioned above.

Also, this is totally normal. This is one of the reasons why I change strings so often. My wound strings always get worn down to the center wire on the frets from bending.

If you should decide to permanently use a plain (unwound) G string, you probably should have your bridge adjusted in order to intonate correctly.
