I do have that horrible habbit and I try to stop it...and most of the times I will catch myself and stop but sometimes I won't even really notice myself doing it...like whenever I get nervous or something...I mean I guess that there are habits that are worse but that one is pretty bad too...so usually I will just cut my nails really short so that i can't bite them because I have heard before that that is really unhealthy for you...so I have really tried to stop myself and like I said for the most part I really have...

I started biting my nails when I was eight or nine years old. I didn't stop until I was in my mid twenties and starting seriously studying classical guitar, when I quickely found out that having long natural nails was essential to having good tone and being able to play it well. So I just stopped biting them. I didn't do anything special, I just set my mind to stopped biting my nails, and haven't done it since. After all while, you really do just break the habit, and if you start to bite them, you usually realize what you are doing so you can stop before you do too much damage to them. You can stop, all you have to do is want to and make a conscience effort to do. I did it, so can you. Good luck.
