sounds like you tuned them way too high... are they in standard? other than that... i mean you could be edward scissorhands or something..

are you maybe tightening them too much ? or they breaking while tuning as you may be turn the tuning thingys too fast etc

id go to your local guitar shop, ask them to string it, and see how that goes.

Maybe you should use light picks or something.Do they break in the same place?

be extremely careful when restringing

replace one string at the time leaving all others on

err. first tune all new strings up to like 6 semitones (or frets, right) beneath what you want it to be. and every two minutes raise them a semitone. while carefully bending the strings every few minutes on several places to loosen them.

what gauge are you using? what guitar? etc

That'd be your problem, then.

where are they breaking? you may need to sand down the bridge sometimes bridges tend to be sharp and cut strings...i'm sure someone else on the forum can help you out on this better than i can though...just a suggestion
