How do you stop biting your nails?

You have to be really determined to do it, but it's quite easy.

  • Get a special nail polish (you can get it clear) from your drug store or general store that is specially made to stop nail biting. Your pharmacist can advise.
  • Paint it on your nails every day.
  • It has a bitter taste so as soon as your nail goes in your mouth you get a reminder to stop.
  • If it wears off, put it on twice a day.
  • If you are not really determined to stop, then don't do it.

Clip them really short, and file them daily.

Get something else to chew on-- try really tough beef jerky, or snack on Grape Nuts cereal.
