How can I stop biting my nails?


It is a disgusting habit and I have struggled with it all my life. When I was younger, I tried using bitter nail polish, but it was not effective for me. I also tried chewing gum, which was sometimes helpful. But I often bite my nails without realizing it. Help! Has anyone overcome this bad habit? Please share!

    Thank you for the link, Jasmeetk. So the three tips I read were:

    1. Sitting on hands

    2. Wear gloves

    3. Snap a rubberband on your wrist

    I will try the glove idea. Thank you.
