I can't stop biting my nails, can you give me some advice on how to stop please?

Sarah B
i think theres supposed to be some sort of varnish that tastes horrid that you can put on your nails to put you off. Also, i heard that there is meant to be more bacteria under your nails than there is on the inside of a toilet seat! Huh...try that for putting you off...you wouldnt go licking the inside of a loo would you! Or ... you could put tape around your fingers so you can't get to them.

ya. paint your nails clear, it's tastes bad or wear gloves like Michel Jackson

Put hot sauce one your nails, file your nails constantly, or just wear a glove.

keep in mind that the area under your finger nails is dirtier than a toilet seat.

You need to keep your hands busy. Nail biters tend to bite when relaxed and not realise it, sit on your hands or find a hobbie. I personally started knitting whilst watching the box. Or you bite when your nervous, well stress balls come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, I kept a small one on a key ring in my pocket. Also lolly pops are good to keep your hands out of your mouth and ask someone to smack your hand when you put them in your mouth. Not to hard obviously. But all these things retrain your Brain and eventually, bingo, no more biting.

Either chop onions (the smell will stay under your fingernails for days) or chew gum to replace the oral fixation

splash some tabasco habanero sauce on 'em.
that will get your attention & I bet you'll avoid your nails

(just don't rub your eyes or nose)

spray hair spray on your nails.. it works i always used to bite my nails since i was little and i sprayed hair spray on my nails and when i went to bite them it tasted so bad i stopped and it really worked.. i haven't bitten my nails in almost a year..

You need to rub a garlic glove on you nails, that way it will be dusgusting to put your mouth on them, and you will get used to not biting them anymore

Mari N
go get a professional manicure....you will think twice about messing things up by biting!

I did it by putting nasty tasting stuff you can buy on them. Can't remember the name, but go to a chemist and ask and they'll be able to tell you. Good luck!

I used 2 suffer from this bad habit & the endless persuation of others 2 stop it didn't work 4 me. When I started 2 realise how unhygenic & dirty this habit was I consciously tried 2 stop myself from doing it. You'll have 2 be strong enough 2 resist yourself from biting the nails. It'll be difficult at first but it'll help you in future. Keep a peppermint/candy in your mouth so that u don't get tempted 2 bite your nails.
All the best. Let me know when u get out of this habit.

I'm a lifelong nail biter - but I read some advice here - and it's really helping.

I keep a bottle of clear nail polish on my nightstand. (I use Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails - bought it at the supermarket.) Every night I put polish on my nails. It strengthens them and has a bt of a taste - so if I forget and start biting, I taste the polish right away and stop.

Anyway it's been a couple of weeks and I have little nails now (they're short but they're there.) I'm not hiding my hands from everybody.

Try it. I feel more confident now that my nails don't look so bitten. Good luck - I know what you're going through.

Put hot sauce, pepper, something that tastes bad on your nails.

Sydney Greine
dip them in Nair.

cut off your fingers eh .. just to do something like execrise or handwork with tools or etc whatever it keep your hands out of your mouth .. eh good luck

resist the urge by doing something to forget about it like chewing gum, playing games or sports, or jogging.

Carry a nail clipper on your key ring.
Chewing nails is very bad for the enamel on your teeth also.
It's gross also, think of where your hands go and what the
heck your sticking in your mouth, each time you take a bite.

Why not take up a cleaner habit, like snacking on your boogers?

david sloane
Just put pepper on them and don't wash it off and you will see whats happens I have done it myself

Dr. Curious
Wear gloves around.
Or you can do the hot sauce thing, just don't get it in cuts! (Maybe onions.)

put some nasty tasting stuff on your nails but keep doing it tell you think to yourself i dont wanna bite em its so sick so pick a food like something very spicy or a really nasty looking sauce!!

peter d
hows about the fact that there are more germs behind your nails than on a toilet seat. therefore everytime you bite your nails its worse than getting on your knees and licking the toilet seat. nice thought.

Yousif (Joe) R
put something that will taste spicy or bitter on your fingers...

Scratch your ar*e just before! That'll soon stop you.

mama penguin of destruxion
get your nails done and ny done i mean get your nails filled and get the french manacure. i know it may seem wierd but it will help with the nail problem alot .
also try and get them done somewhere nice like really expensive and tell like everyone you know look at my nails arent they amazing or something because recognition is what your gonna need to become self concious for your habit.. The problem is also you bite not in realization and sometimes you are but dont care you should get some rubber bands and bite on those with your sharp teeth right where your saliva glands are and youll start to hate that taste lol and not really think about biting your nails

ok this is what i do put tinfoil on your finger naisl for 3 months

well i paint my nails or have something on them that looks good so i dont want to reck it, or i put fake nails on, oops sorry ur a guy, i would wear gloves or keep your mind busy on something else

go to the dentist and get him to pull all your teeth out. :)

Natie S
put tabasco sauce on your nails

the w
put really spicy oil on your nails. so then when u bite it, it will burn your tougue and gradually u will not bite them anymore
