There are two popular methods to beat this habits. The first is to keep nails trimmed short so that you'll have less of a nail to bite. The second is to coat your nails with a bitter-tasting nail biting polish.

Thanks to my sister's wedding I can say I've finally broken my lifelong bad habit of biting my nails as of September 2014.

I have tried to stop biting and/or picking my nails for years. I can go a month or two without biting but then I start the process all over again. I will consider myself broken of the habit after 3 months of no normal biting or picking.

This is really really hard! And I have no idea why I can't stop. I must of tried at least 3 or 4 times to stop biting my nails, but I find myself doing it without even realising! The special nail varnish you can get that taste's awful, doesn't work, because I just bite it off. Wearing gloves doesn't work because I have to take them off for various things and forget to put them back on.

My new plan is to keep myself really busy!, because i've noticed I do it more when i have nothing to do or i'm watching something. Turns out this goal is harder than I thought it would be!!

I'm already part of the way there - I don't keep my nails bitten all the way down all the time any more. But I still tend to bite them off when they get too long.
