I've used a product called Stop the Bite -Hard as Hoof. It is clear on your nails and tastes terrible, so you don't want in your mouth. It takes about three weeks --but you break the habit.


I had tried the nail bitter stuff, and it didn't work for me at first - what worked was weekly manicures (even with almost no nail) and once I got out of the habit of biting (I actually craved the taste of it...) then I was able to use the bad tasting stuff to remind myself not to bite.

Best of luck, it is a hard habit to break, but once it's broken you'll feel proud of the way your nails look!! :)

Every time you notice your fingers are in your mouth, imagine you just cleaned up a pile of dog poop. Eventually you will notice before you bite your nails....thats how I quit biting mine:)

How I stopped was getting into painting my nails, so I thought they were just to pretty to bite. Now everytime I catch myself or if other people catch me I do something to make me stop. For example, if I catch myself I put hot sauce, nail polish remover, or rubbing alcohol on my nails. I personally think that if people bite their nails they are either bored or they are nervous about something. Hopefully this helped you if you bite your nails.

How do you stop biting your nails without using that bad tasting nail stuff?

About 30 years ago I decided I had to quit biting my nails and what I did was replace the urge with biting with something else. I realized that one reason I bit my nails was when I felt a uneven edge or a break so instead of biting them I got a file and started grooming them. It did the trick. Now I carry a file in my handbag, have them all over the house and I don't bite my nails. Maybe this will work for you too.
