Good luck! I bit my nails until I was 23 years old. I tried everything including that paint on stuff that tasted bad, but nothing stopped me. I even thought once that I'd get acrylic nails and they'd look so nice I wouldn't bite them. Wrong. After spending $45 on them I bit them all off that night.
It's a very tough habit to break, but if I can do it anybody can do it. My nails are nice and long now. :)
I have the same bad habit !!
Ugh I've stopped a bunch of times for a month or so. I usually do okay, except I struggle with long nails & when I scratch my arm or something I make myself bleed..... I kind of went crazy today biting my nails, I should really try to stop again
I was the same way for years. As posted above by another poster; I also broke the habit when I started to wear gel nails. I can't not have nails now. I love them. Of course I haven't bitten my nails since. Great way to stop, but might get you addicted to nails.
I now have my own nails which I'm pretty proud of.
Guys, just keep up that willpower. I chewed my nails until I was in the 8th grade. My Dad would always get on to me "Stop eating your fingers!!" but nothing worked. I finally got tired of not being able to scratch an itch or scrub my scalp when I washed my hair. I tried the fake nails and that bitter no-bite stuff, nothing worked. It was finally sheer willpower that won out. Just keep that mind strong and it will work. I grow pretty nice nails now.
I bit my nails up until 2 months ago. It was sooo annoying and I would do it all the time. I just told myself NO more and now they are actually growing. I was so sick of worrying about what other people thought when they saw my chewed nails that I was able to quit. Good luck :)
Got some people with a strong will! I know there are special products that you can put on your nail that is supposed to taste nasty. Those I have recommended it to a lot of people, I never actually tried it.
If you aren't able to grow nails, you can also get fortifying nail coat which will help keep your nails strong so you can grow them out. Always found that once you had some nail grow, it was easier to not bite anything.
