I've been biting my nails since I was 5 , and I really want to stop. I've stopped several times, but went back to my old habit a few months later. I know it's gross and unhealthy... I know it looks bad. My husband has asked me to stop because he has seen me with nails and says my hands are pretty that way.
So my question is... Have any of you ladies bitten your nails in the past, and have stopped for good? How did you do it?

I used to be a terrible nail biter but I quit in my early 20's and have never bitten them since, unfortunately my method is too drastic for you. I broke my jaw in an accident and had my jaw wired shut for 6 weeks.
To stop biting your nails is IMO more difficult than quitting smoking (and I've done both). What helps me, is keeping my nails manicured and polished. Who wants to bite beautiful long nails? LOL.
