i found that one of the main reasons i bite my nails is the absence of a nail-cutter! Should have one in both my office and home 2 days ago

but I did not chew them out of boredom, rather I think I chewed them because they were uneven and had a snag in them or something.
Starting today I am going to keep nail clippers on me at all times. That way, I will never chew them off due to some annoying little inconsistency. 2 days ago
There are a few ways I might go about this. One, is will power, but I’ve seen how poorly that works for me. Two, is relax and not stress out so much… but that’s a separate goal.
The third idea seems most likely to work. Once I did have a manicure and had fake nails put on. I didn’t bite for weeks. I think that might be the best rout. 4 days ago
It is a nerves thing. And it gives me something to do sometimes. Last time i stopped biting my nails, i replaced it with drinking/sipping water. This also worked for stress, or emotional eating. Nowadays it’s a bit of boredom eating too. Anyway, i’ll say EVENTUALLY to this one. Might not tackle it just now.
All the cool ways i can paint my nails and use it as part of my look :) 5 days ago
I have noticed that I seem to bite my nails when I am nervous/anxious about something.
Now that I have successfully identified the trigger, here’s hoping that I will soon find a way to stop biting them!! 1 week ago
Just realized that whenever I am biting nails, I am not even aware of it until I am done biting :) this will be a tough one to stop 1 week ago
What will finally get me motivated to do this? 2 weeks ago
Chewing gum has helped me massively – your brain knows you’re already ‘biting’ and so doesn’t feel the need to bite your nails. Think about it, do you usually bite your nails when you’re eating? No. It’s only when your mouth is unoccupied. Chewing gum keeps it occupied and stops you biting. Try it, it works! You do of course need to have gum with you at all times, so stock up. When you notice you’re biting – stop and start chewing gum immediately. Good luck! 3 weeks ago

I need to stop biting my nails. Luckily I think I have the perfect inspiration…these super awesome dr who nails. Since I don’t like the idea of acrylic nails I have to wait until my nails grow out to get them…
After they are long enough I will get a nice tardis galaxy manicure. 4 weeks ago
This is not going so well. I still don’t know what happened; why I started biting again. The only thing that changed that I can think of is that I watched a video of me ex boyfriend (feelings for whom, I can’t seem to shake) within this past week, and I have been thinking about him a lot…which is very ridiculous, I know. That’s really the only thing I can think of that’s been bothering me any deal.
It hurts to type. I feel so silly for my fall off the wagon. I put my rubber bands on my wrist again to try and get myself to stop on a psychological level. I am hoping it works. I would really like to have my nails back. Going to try and go all day tomorrow without biting them. 4 weeks ago
I went back to my tried and true methods today that was working for me before:
·Biotin supplement (along with many others)
·Exfoliate with home-made sugar scrub (olive oil, agave nectar, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and crystal cane sugar) and then moisturize right after
·Condition, smooth, buff, polish and shine with multi-sided tool
·Nail strengthener applied today (and repeated every 3 days)
I haven’t had the urge to nibble today, amd there are no snags at the moment to mess with, but if I do feel nibbley, I will add on the thick rubber bands again. I need to keep a nail clipper on me all the time. 1 month ago
fell off the wagon.
I was SURE that I was completely done with this goal, but here I am today (started yesterday) with five of my nails bitten down so far that it hurts to put any pressure on my fingertips. OUCH! Dummy me.
I haven’t even been too stressed out or bored…or angry. I guess the only thing that I can think of is that I haven’t been as diligent keeping up with the things that were working so well for me before: nail strengthener polish, biotin and daily supplements; lotion at night, clipping when I see the slightest tear or snag.
My poor nails aren’t as strong as they were. I stopped biting mid-January, and marked this as done in March. I really thought I would never go back down this road.
Time to get back on the wagon, and ride merrily along as I DO NOT bite my nails. I think it’s time for my rubber bands again; they helped a lot! 1 month ago
