  • Listen maybe you should look up all the infections that this can cause, it might scare you into not doing it!

  • Maybe try getting a cuticle nipper (like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Cuticle-Nipper-Double-Spring-Stainless/dp/B0012DDTVQ)? Keep it handy and you can just nip the frays right away instead of chewing.

  • You can use the same thing that they put on fingers to keep kids from sucking their thumbs.....

  • Try to determine why you are stressing and de-stress. The traffic commute seems to trigger my cuticle-biting tendencies (I never do it when I am on vacation).
