How to stop biting your nails

Report as

Just think about all the dirt and grime your hands come into contact with on a "daily" basis, and your putting that in your mouth, yikes!

Put some powdered soap on your nails. That should stop you.

I got out of my nail biting habit by keeping my nails cut pretty short, that way there isnt much to bite. After you get in the habit of keeping your nails cut.. its a lot easier to break your nail biting habit.

Try putting another habit in place of the nail biting. When I was 13, I tried painting my nails, and then instead of biting my nails, I would pick off the nail polish. It worked (but made me look fidgety, I'm thinking). You could also try smooth "worry" stone...you rub the stone rather than bite your nails.

You probably just like having something in your mouth. Try some chewing gum. Hope this helps!

Lime/ Lemon juice on the nails will make your body stop when you start. also take a throw away glove and cut off a piece on each finger and tape in it on.
