How To Help Stop Nail Biting Guide

Updated on August 21, 2014

Nail Biting Gone Wild

There is a good bit of researched facts and statistics for you to learn about various methods of stopping to bite your nails.

For those who don't like reading through masses of words, I am going to tell you right here the most effective way of stopping.

Once you get to a certain point, whether it be days or weeks of stopping, the hardest part is over. It's that time that is the hardest which drives us crazy.

Try a cheap supplement good for it below or you can try the more pricey systems that people purchase through here often at Amazon with success in stopping nail biting. It's tough to do, so both avenues are best to quit.

Biotin is a water soluble(you pee it out if take too much) which when taken in 3000-5000 mg per day, will increase your hair skin and nails to grow much faster.

This is the best way in my opinion, and has worked great for me. Your nails will grow visibly faster, which will allow you to get them long enough that it is worth stopping completely because you made it so far!

For those of you who don't know, nail biting is also known as Onychophagia. Usually caused by nervousness or boredom, that's the furthest it ever will ever become in most cases. However, in some rare cases, Onychophagia can be a symptom of disorders such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder(OCB). Then again, we are in a time where it seems as if everything on the planet can be diagnosed as a "mental disorder". If you find yourself nibbling on your nails while stuck in bumper to bumper traffic, don't be so fast to call your doctor. Especially if you are a female, since there are 10% less females than males who are guilty of biting nails.
