Nailbiting - ah what fond memories - my mother painting my fingers with some foul tasting stuff (castor oil?), her putting mittens on me, getting my hand slapped, I could go on forever.

I was a nail biter for most of my childhood and as a teenages as well. I stopped biting my nails when I graduated high school (I was speaking and wantd to make a good impression), but since that was sooooooo long ago, I can not remember how I did it! LOL

Seriously though, you need to set up something to remind yourself not to chew (I bet you do bite with out a conscious decision to do so!). Maybe a rubber band around your wrist, or put your watch on the "wrong" arm, or something?

Good luck with this! If we can stop smoking, you can quit biting!
