    How can I stop eating my nails?

    This problem is due to a bad habit combined with nervousness. Please let me know if you have special info about this.

    I would suggest putting something on your nails that will leave a foul taste in your mouth if you bite them. Myself I don't know what that would be, But you could google it I'm sure. Good luck!!

      I'll try scratching soap that will leave an unpleasant taste if
      I eat my nails. Thanks for your answer Jthomp42.

    My wife used to do this constantly and it drove me nuts! If it's nerves that are the cause, try looking up some remedies to ease them. What are you so nervous about?

      I tried with some relaxing pills but didn't work. I usually get anxious when thinking; if a play something a start eating my nails, if I am working in something interesting start eating them and do it unconsciously.
