maybe ask someone to help you its hard but possible to do on your own but its easier if you have someone there to help you with this

Perhaps you could put something that doesn't smell nice on your fingers? Some sort of perfume you don't like the smell of or such, so that everytime you smell them you're aware of it and so can stop. If this doesn't work, ask someone to keep an eye on you? That way they can tell you so that you know and stop.

It's not something anyone would laugh at, it's a problem to you and that's fine (:

They make these drops that taste really bad to stop you from biting your nails and that worked for my friend so I would guess something strong smelling would help you realize what you're doing.

Good luck <3
