Nail Picking - February 15th 2011, 08:54 PM

Heh... -.-' I hate it. I pick at my nails when I get nervous or stressed, and now I just can't stop. I'm doing it all the time. I want my nails to grow out so I can make them look really pretty, but I don't know how to get myself to stop picking at them until the edges are shredded. I want long, healthy nails, not short torn-up ones! Any advice on how to stop?

i pick my nails too, i dont really know why i pick them i just do, maybe when you want to pick them keep your hands busy fiddle with your sleeve or something instead or play with your phone.

Oh god you should see my nails now I always pick them when I am anxious. Try getting some really disgusting tasting clear nail varnish. :]

xD Actually, I don't bite my nails (I have braces and sort of... can't, even if I wanted to). I use my nails to pick at my other nails. orz
