Nail Biting

Posted , 4 users are following.

Does anyone had success in stopping biting nails if so how, I have tried the bitter tasting liquid and plasters but mostly I don't realise I am doing it. Radical innovative ideas ?

    Try wearing cotton gloves as much as possible.

    Try hypnotherapy.

    When you feel those fingers going near your mouth start tapping your nose.

    Not sure if you are male or female but if you are female get a professional manicure with gel nails.

    Try biting on a pen lid! You are not going to give an anxious habit up right away, so start another! Chewing on the end of a pen,pencil pen lid or eraser may not be ideal, but it is certainly preferable to biting your nails
