Nail Biting

So I am a chronic nail biter. I have been from as early as my memory goes back. It is a real problem for me as I don't have any nails left on my fingers, mostly just skin. I think because i've been doing it so much for so long i've gotten used to how it feels so it doesn't actually feel bad enough to discourage me from doing it completely, but I know nail biting is a bad habit and it would be nice to actually not be constantly irritated. Also, i've noticed it holds me back when playing guitar sometimes.

Help me Pit, you are my only hope.

Stick your hands in your ass and don't wash them.
If you bite them after this there is no hope for you.

It's not really that bad of a habit. The only bad part of it is a lot of people think you're weird for it, but if you don't mind that, then it really doesn't hurt.

I do it all the time and I kinda like it. I've stopped before for months at a time, but it brought no additional value to my life, so I started up again.

I've gone maybe a week or two at most without biting, and maybe my fingers are deformed or my nails have forgotten how to grow properly or something because they don't look like other peoples nails when grown.

I know a guy that chews the skin off the tips of his fingers to the point where they bleed sometimes. I mean, that probably didnt help but at least your less weird by comparison now.

I bite my nails but only to the extent that they look good. They look pretty normal. I do chew the skin around them at times due to anxiety :/

I like to bite my skin sometimes to see the teeth marks....but really it is because I have a jaw tension problem and usually once a day I have to grab a hard piece of leather or something and bite down really hard on it for about 10 seconds.

As far as I know, you're not supposed to use your nails when playing bass, so it shouldn't matter one way or the other.

I only bite my nails when I forget to trim them and they get too long.
