Nail biting or biting nails is a habit and one that can be so frustrating. How do I know? Because I was a nail biter and did so for many years, even to the point where my nail or nails became infected. They even hurt when I would be washing up as they had been chewed down so far.
I hated my short ugly nails and tried so many times to stop chewing them. I painted them with yukky tasting substance and that didn’t work as I eventually didn’t mind the tast. I would wear gloves to bed and sometimes during the day and that didn’t work either. I recall looking at other peoples nails and thinking to myself how much I would love to have their nails.
