I do this, but not as bad as I use to. I catch my self now, and try to stop. I do it when I get nervous. I know this is a habit, I need to quit. I have bitten my fingernails until my fingers where sore.

My boyfriend used to do this before. But he have now stooped this bad habit. You must be doing only some times or you have wrote that when u get nervous. But my boy friend use to do all the time. For the first time i found him very cute doing this. But later i thought it is a very bad habit. So i wanted him to stop, so he is much better now. I want him to completely stop this, bitting his fingernails.

Yeah, I know how you feel. I do the same. I think it's got to do with nerves. Maybe we should try meditation or something, to help with the anxiety :) I sometimes find myself thumbsucking too when I'm about to fall asleep but still thinking lots of thoughts. not very hygienic, i know. hehhehe.

I do not thumb suck, but I will bit my nails. I wonder if meditation, would work. Thank you for answering.

Bad Habit - Kick off this habit
You should quite that nail-biting habit because it is not hygienic and at your age it does not look cute at all. Even in kids it does not look cute. It is a sign of insecurity and also lacks of self-discipline. Some kids don't just bite fingernails, they even put their nails inside their mouth without knowing how dirty hands are. You are no longer a kid my dear so you should not be like a kid. You know what is right and what is wrong so I hope that after two years you already have gotten rid of that bad habit.

I used to bite my fingernails when I was a kid for a year, I was so addicted and could not stop it. It was not because I was nervous or something but I just felt liek it was a necessary thing to do and was unavoidable. But I started hating it, my fingers were sore and and my nails looked so ugly. Now I never do it anymore.
