    Also a BAD nail biter here. Only thing I had work was wearing gloves until the nails grow out a little. At least at home where I bit them most. Than having acrylics put on. On short bitten nails they do not stay very well.

    You can also try leaving some dish soap or other liquid soap on your hands, or Tabasco sauce (don't rub your eyes or anything like that), coat your finger tips in wax.... etc.

    I recently asked hubby to remind me whenever he sees me with fingers in my mouth... LOL. I always seem to fall back into biting them really fast.

    wow.

    try getting an expensive manicure. then you will feel really bad for biting your nails becuase they are really expensive.

    also try seeping your nails in hot sauce. then everytime you bite it, it would be HOT. =D

    Dont be a pussy. just stop, its not that hard. If people can quit smoking without professional help surely you can stop putting your fingers in your mouth.
