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!
mind over matter. when you "feel the urge" control your mind to not give in. distract yourself. this will be a training process for you until you no longer experience mental anguish over wanting to "dig right in". this technique will feel nearly impossible at first, but with time "practice makes perfect"
p.s. as a Woman you will be much more attractive and feminine with clean manicured nails. Your husband will enjoy this, especially, if you spruce your lovelies up from time to time with a ruby red or any available color of the nail polish spectrum.
nail-biting is a repulsive habit and you seem like a lovely lady
I like your profile name . My husband gives me the same advice...I will be working on sharpening my mind!
If you want to sharpen your mind you should learn mindful meditating, & emotions/feelings control..(All on utube & free to watch)..Try Eckhart Tolle for a starter: You might enjoy Oprah Winfreys Soul Series with Eckhart Tolle..6 x 1 hr vids.
I think everyone of us does it when where young. I think when you're stressed, have nothing to do or just generally have some idle time on your hands (usually in the evening) then the habit starts up and before you know it your biting them.
If you find something that will keep your hands busy when you have free time, then eventually you'll stop going near them. Try reading or knitting or doing some other type of activity. It might take a week or two for you to get out of the habit, but it will happen.

How do you stop picking at, biting and obsessively clipping your fingernails?I have done this since I was 10 years old, have tried everything and cannot seem to stop. If I don't have a nail clipper nearby, I sort of freak out. Any ideas?
