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.

Answer

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.



Answer

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:)

Try to think of the benefits of not biting your nails. However, if it dosent work you can get a nail varnish that you put on your nails and it tastes really bad. ---------------------------------------------------- I found that filing my nails so that they were smooth helped me stop.

My friend put band aids on her finger tips. It helped her to stop because she didn't like biting band aids. Or you can also purchase a special nail varnish for your nails that has a bad smell/taste to stop you from biting your nails.

You can stop biting your nails by keeping them short with using finger nail clippers instead of biting your nails. i would say follow these steps to success step 1 : file your nails so that they are all at the same length step 2 : paint them step 3: have one finger as your biting nail bite that whilst the other grow step 4 :once your nails have grown and your biting nail pretend that it tastes vile like poop good luck

It is pretty simple, all you need to do is find a special polish that is made to stop you from biting your nails, in order to use it: Apply it like normal nailpolish (It's clear by the way) and let it dry, and when you start biting your nails it will taste horrible and your mouth will be burning, therefore your not going to want to bite your nails are you?

Biting the nails does not give you the wart infection. But then biting the nails is a bad habit and is a sign of deep seated anxiety, probably.

I don't really have an alternative- but to stop biting your nails wear fake nails if possible- even 5 dollar ones from Walgreen's because you can't bite those off!!

Awhile back, a friend of mine got her daughter to stop biting her nails by giving her a plastic straw to chew on. Her daughter ended up breaking the habit within 2 to 3 weeks, but she only had a moderate nail biting problem.

It means to stop biting your fingernails. "Monkey on your back" is a slang term for any addiction or very bad habit. They are telling you you must get over your bad habit and stop biting your fingernails.

Stop biting your nails.The dog is biting my shoe again.The biting, snide comment upset him for days.

Nail biting makes your nails look unpleasant. If biting breaks the cuticle, there is a risk of infection. It has also been associated with dental problems and can transfer bacteria from under the nails into the mouth.

Biting your nails is a horrible habit. My mother told me that if you bite your nails and become infeted you can lose your fingertips, which scared me so much i didnt bite my nails anymore. But if you have this habit i recomend that YOU CUT YOUR NAILS SO OFTEN THAT THEYRE SO SHORT YOU CANT BITE THEM ANYMORE.i hope this helps :]
