mehh, that's never been a problem. I do however make attempts to stop when in a relationship doe.

I'm not sure what kinda chicks you mess with, but black chicks pay attention to nails. I figured that out early in high school and had good nails ever since.

Did you do anything special (products, hypnosis, etc) to stop?

Sitting in the car waiting for someone to get out of work & I found myself staring at my nails. I feel like I can see the millimeters growing.

I've always wanted a manicure too. That's what I'm thinking about to help keep me on the straight and narrow.

I simply made a conscious effort to quit. For me it was simply mind over matter and what trips me out is I haven't had the urge to bite again.

I used to bite the shot out of mine in middle school. Not sure how I ended up backing off, but glad I did. The amount of germs that you could come across doing that sick.gif

Nah you are obviously not a nail biter..
As an ex nail biter i can tell u this..
The best part is to peel the top layer of your nail,
So having short nails wont help.
And also 2nd best is biting the skin around the nails
I've been "sober" for 25+yr, just keep reminding yourself to stop and it will somehow stop by itself..

I used to always bite my nails to the point they would bleed. I'm always chewing gum, pen caps etc. so it just all habit. I used some nail hardener on my nails one time and stop biting them down ever since.

Moms picked me up this when I was 10.

Worked really well for however long I used it I remember. No scent + clear. Different strokes for different folks though

The thing about those bitter nail solutions is that every time you wash your hands, you have to reapply. Well, at least the couple brands I've tried. I had one that left the skin around my nails orange too.

I used to bite my nails and the skin around then fiendishly when I was younger. Then by maybe the end of middle school I just stopped. Now I only bite it if it's torn, and the urge to bite more frequently hasn't hit me at all.

I guess I attribute it to a combination of me growing into someone who has trouble forming/maintaining habits, wanting longer nails for some reason, and becoming more aware of how unsanitary it can be.

Well wishes on kicking the habit young gods.

Been biting my nails since I can remember, I've tried quitting a few times with mild success. Until something happens where I get anxious/nervous for some reason and just go ham. The habit then picks back up where it left off. You'd think I learned after I got a bad infection on my thumb due to me biting off a hang nail but nope, still doing it to this day. I'm gonna try to stop though today. NT fam we can do it.

I bite my nails too. Idk why.

My lady says I'm nervous or some bull like that. But it's even like that. I just built the habit my whole life and it's second nature haha

Never thought about quitting either. And I don't bite my nails as bad as that dude who posted the pic in the spoiler as well.

Been biting my nails since middle school, now I'm 28. Just do it out of habit. This thread thought is going to make me take a conscious effort to stop, 24 hours clear so far pimp.gif

Weird thing is I feel like the reason I hardly ever get sick *knocks on wood* is attributed to the fact that I bite my nails. laugh.gif My immune system knows how to fight **** off
