I´m reading through the explorer on Mylot reading through discussions, when suddenly I noticed I was biting my nails. This is a habit that has accompanied me for as long as I can remember, but I had not done it lately. That´s what I think. What causes someone to start biting their nails? Do you bite your nails?

Yes, it´s very hard to stop it. I rarely bite my nails now. I used to bite them more when I was a child.

@carebear29 I will do the same. It has worked before. Sometimes I forget to stay busy.

I never bite my nails at all even as a kid. I was told it's a sign of insecurity.

It can be, my family din´t like to see me biting my nails, but I never new the real source of it. I think is stress.

It might be boredom or anxiety of some sort, or just an annoying habit

I relate it more with anxiety. Stress is also a spark for buting my nails.

I do not bite my nails and perhaps stress is the cause. I suppose biting one's nails has a calming effect.

Yes, it´s related to some kind of stress. I don´t really know the source. I got very anxious when I was little and that´s the time I started biting my nails. In the present, I have more control and can restrain from doing it.

Me too. I just rarely bite my nails; however, in the past, it was almost everyday and at every hour.

I can. It´s just a matter of finding the source and eliminating the effects.

I will bite them when they get too long. I don't bite them for nerves or anything.

MYLOT was the best paid site earlier... but it stopped for a while again now it started paying thats a good thing to know

It could be. Noticing unusual things always gets me nervous. It´s like witnessing the unknown. Uncertainty freezes me up.

I don't bite my nails. I never did the same even when I was a kid.

I guess nervousness causes it. Never done it myself.
