Easy Ways to Stop Nail Biting

There are certain ways to stop nail biting forever. Among them are the usual treatments such as HRT (Habit Reversal Training) and the not so usual treatments such as hypnosis. However, keep in mind that all of these treatments require you to stick to them and in most cases it is a long process of quitting nail biting.

There are certain tips though, that can help you in the way to stop nail biting. These tips are easy to follow and to remember:

  • Use a disgusting cream on your nails. From all the ways to stop nail biting, this must be the most direct one. Now, I'm not saying you should put garbage or things like that in your fingers. There are products out there, like Control-It for example that you apply on your nail, and when you put your fingers in your mouth you'll feel a terrible taste.

  • Keep your nails painted. This tips is specially useful for women. When you have your nails painted, every time you put your nails in your mouth, you'll be conscious of it, and it will help you break the action immediately.

  • Keep your nails short. This way you'll have nothing to bite right?

  • Get others to help you. You can tell your family and friends to help you overcome nail biting by letting you know when you start doing it.

  • Stay focused in your goal. Now, this is not as easy as it may seem, but in the way of doing it you'll also learn how to control yourself in every situation.

Stick to your treatment. Follow it religiously and you'll be on your way to healthy nails and fingers without even noticing it!
