Yes I do when I get nervous and i would like to share this wonderful article here for nail bitters people like me comments will be appreciated : Crunch, crunch, crunch. Do you bite your nails? Some kids and adults do this, especially when they're feeling nervous. But it's not a healthy habit. Here's why:Your fingernails have a couple of big jobs to do. They protect your fingertips and make it easier for you to pick up tiny things, like loose threads. They also come in handy when you have an itch that needs scratching.But when you bite your nails, your nails aren't there to do those things. And by biting them, you are breaking the skin and maybe bringing germs into these openings in your skin. In fact, some people bite their nails and cuticles down so far, they bleed! When germs invade, you can get an infection.Speaking of germs, there are germs under your fingernails, so when you bite them, those germs can go into your mouth. Think about all the icky stuff you touch all day long, like your baby sister's drool-dripping pacifier, your stinky gym socks, or slimy earthworms for your science project. You don't want those nasty germs getting in your mouth. If you want to stop biting your nails, good for you! You can ask your mom or dad to buy you a special nail polish that makes your nails taste awful. This can help you learn to stop biting them. It also may help to keep your nails trimmed and looking good - so good you don't want to chomp on them!

I did when I was younger, but not anymore. You grow out of it if it's the habbit you don't want to keep.

i used to bite my nails..ever since i was a kid. but this summer, i stopped biting them..i dont know what motivated me to do it this time, but ive stopped and now have nice, long nails! but they're really hard to get used to..i have a hard time doing things that were much easier before cause my nails get in the way or im scared of breaking them. the cartoon strip is a bit small to see but it says: im biting my nails again...i should stop...just a little bit more.
