I sure do. Have ever since I was a kid and it hasn't never gone away.

Have any of you managed to stop? I try telling myself not to do it, but I always find myself at it again without thinking about it.

Poll incoming.
#3
I do, I managed to stop for a week before but it didn't last.
#4
I do, and I'm not trying to stop despite constantly having friends/girls/parents/cuddly animals telling me I need to stop it.
#5
Putting poison on my nails stopped it quickly.

In all seriousness, I do not nor will ever bite my nails. Sounds disgusting to me.
Ceci n'est pas une signature.
#6
No,

it's disgusting, fingernails are probably one of the dirtiest areas on you body why the **** would you want to bite them.

Also I makes they looks awful, and deformed.


Srs put your fingernail under a microscope.

Massively.

Tried using that nasty tasting stuff that you put on, didn't work. I've tried lots of other techniques to try and stopp too, but none of them have ever worked for me. It makes my fingers look disgusting, but I don't think I'll ever stop.

Yea, why not? I've never cut them "properly", it feels terrible to do that. And to guys saying that it's the dirtiest area of your body, big deal, it's not like you get AIDS from that. Well, I do keep my hands rather clean, I wash them quite often as I can't stand dirt and I also avoid touching anything dirty, so maybe my fingernails aren't even that dirty.
#12
Yeah I do. Always have, probably always will
maybe if you had a
revolver
you'd
suck less

I did when I was a kid, then I figured it was disgusting and a bad habit, so I quit.
#14
Yeah I do. I quit it once by switching it out with cracking my fingers, but my fingers started feeling weird so I switched back.

i do...dont really see the problem! i always file my nails shortly after though so they look okay
#18
I do, and it annoys me that I do. I stop sometimes but then something will happen and I'll get angry and start biting them. I'm trying to stop though.
#19
Only when they are getting long. I'm not the type of person that chews them really short and can't stop doing it. I just do it to keep them at a reasonable length. Seems easier than cutting them.

I got that stuff when I was a kid... I just ended up getting used to the taste and kind of enjoying it.

I don't bite my nails obsessively, although I used to bite them too much, I just do it instead of cutting them. I don't really give a shit if they're smooth or not, I just don't want them being too long, and it's not like they're horribly misshapen.
#22
Only if there's a sharp bit and I don't have access to nail clippers. It's kind of a last resort.

#23
I did before so i wouldn't have to cut my nails with scissors, but then I started realizing they look bad, and my teeth started hurting from it, so i quit no problem. Now I do it from time to time just when I feel like it, but otherwise I have stopped.

#24
I do to keep them short. It's easier than cutting or filing them and it keeps them neat.

I used to, then one day I decided that I wanted long nails and stopped immediately. Not hard at all. Then I had long nails, then fake nails for a while, got rid of them, and now I clip them. Now if they're not short they drive me crazy.

Yes i used to but stopped about three months ago. The only way i managed to convince myself was to stop was when i saw how pretty my nails could be. So now they are long and painted and oh so good to scratch mozzie bites with.
I did try putting that bad tasting stuff on them but i managed to just peel it off and keep on biting.
Allthough sometimes i find myself beginning to bite my nails when i am nervous and such.
#28
I used to bite them a lot, my toe nails too. But now I play classical guitar and I have to keep them a very specific shape on my right hand and I like them really short on my left hand so I have to file them every few days.

I just bite the top off when they get too long. Don't trust myself with nail clippers.
#32

"I used to, but now I've stopped."

Started carrying around nail clippers everywhere and using them when I felt compelled to bite my nails. I obsessively trim my nails, so it's a good thing that I stopped biting them.

No I don't and I never have. I don't understand why people do it either, its dirty and they make your nails look terrible, which is why we have nail clippers..

I do, but I need stop.
