  • hot sauce or nailpolish? usually it stems from anxiety, try to find a replacement for that addiction

  • I will tell you what dh told his cousin. Worked like a charm for her. He told her to imagine she did not clean her hand as well as she thought after taking a dump. When she chews her nails she is chewing her own poo.

  • It worked for her. She tells people that is why she quit.

  • I wear fake french nails, they're too expensive to chew off! Seriously, I still find myself biting them from time to time but it's certainly not the problem it used to be! Try it!
