I'm posting here because I'm looking for your help. Any good strategies? I haven't really chewed a nail in 24 hours (caught myself once or twice and stopped). Anyone else quit this habit, and have ideas? Anyone else a nailbiter that wants to stop?I have chewed my nails forever, and that is a long time (64 years). I seem to do it more when I am anxious than at other times.I am now in a "support group" for it. An informal one. I have a girlfriend who is almost 6 years old, and she bites her fingernails and toenails, to her parents' distress. So she and I have agreed to quit. We check how each other is doing. So far I am better at this than she is. What I do is trim them every other day. I have gone about 3 weeks now without biting them. I have to be really careful, because I think if I were to bite them, I would be letting her down, and she is too precious to me to do that. Hers are still so short that they must hurt her. She said some pain is good pain. I cannot believe someone not yet six can be that wise. But I am not sure fingernail biting pain is a good one.
