Do you bite the inside of your cheeks?

Just wondering how many others do this. It's a terrible habit of mine and there's just no way to stop doing it!

  • I do. As a kid I was worse. Now that I am older (and smoke) not so much!

  • You need to tell yourself that you will stop doing this...I think it's nerves or just a bad habit.
    I used to do this now I just do this once in awhile only because I remind myself to stop.
    I chew off the skin of my lip sometimes I hate when I do that once you start it bugs you.
    It has to be smooth for me to stop. dumb I know.

  • I do! I've always done it. My father does it too. It drives my DH crazy! He tries to tell me that I don't look good doing it, but I used to bite my nails and since I quit that, I have focused on my cheeks.
