When you bite your nails, is it a form of self harm?

Yes, I suppose you could call it self harm. And I don't now why this was reported either. How about sending the person who has reported you an email and ask her?

not self harm. just oral fixation. but it could do a little TMJ stuff and think of all of the icky places your hands are in the run of the day. and what icky things you dig out from under your nails when you run a file under them. you want that in your mouth? remind me i said that when i bite my nails the next time.


mags_cass
I DONT ..


Ya-sai
Could be a sign of nervousness, shyness....
It will eventually damage your nails and your teeth.

Not really; it's more nervousness or anxiety or just plain a bad habit.


dukalink6000
Only if you do it until you bleed

Nope don't think so, people normally self harm their flesh - nails are almost bone-like (which is why we don't feel it when we bite our nails)...so no, not really! x


fae
no. scratching for no reason it though.


Clogged-Up
No, but if you get dirt in there--you could get a terrible infection.


angelina_mcardle

sbb_hssn
no

sometimes it is associated with obsessive compulsive disorder


Bobbie
I think it is, especially if you bite them so low that it makes your fingers hurt or bleed.


JeffE
It's a nervous habit.


manikally
not at all. it doesn't do enough to be classed as self harming


annie

Many prople do this out of habit or stress.Its not harmful..but if you bite them till they bleed it is quite painful..Try putting alcohol on your fingers or hot sauce, then when you bit it it will taste bad..good luck

+++++ SPOOK ++++
they sell nail clippers use that ..... leave your nails alone!

I WILL SMACK YOU EVERT TIME YOU TRY TO EAT YOUR NAILS! AND I WILL SCREAM STOP IT STOPIT!! WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH YOU!


Carnation
nails are dead protein. it doesn't hurt so it can't be self-harming. it's the same as eating your hair. hair is also dead protein. yum.


nocturnidae

Nailbiting is a tough habit.... no.. it is an obsession.. no, it is a form of self harm... well... perhaps all of the above.. I think I'm like most people in that I like doing it so much, that I'm not really motivated to quit. I did quit for a few years, and here's how:

The trick is to sequentially stop biting one nail at a time. Start with the nail that you bite least. I notice that the nails on my ring fingers grow fastest (is it just me?). Every few days exclude one more nail. If you catch yourself biting one of the nails you've excluded, just bite a different one.

There's one more critical piece, and that's the nail clipper. If you've been biting your nails for a while, you probably haven't been clipping or filing them. Starting to clip and file again really helps give your nails that smooth, rounded edge which you'll be less likely to bite into.

Another trick that I have heard of is to paint your nails. Some people say they'll bite their nails even when they're painted,
