  • Oh, that reminds me, you can also come up with a substitute behavior every time you feel the urge, such as chew on a straw; maybe chewing gum is the same idea??

  • every time you put your fingers in your mouth, think of something really gross. Think of all the dirty things we touch throughout the day!

  • I used to bite mine all the time. I started keeping them polished, because I never wanted to mess them up. Now the only time I do it is when they're un-polished and I find one that has snagged or something.

  • There is a nail polish that is made for nail bitters---it's clear and has a very bitter taste. I'd try that.
