How can i stop biting my nails?

And also tel me what are the ways to grow your nails healthy, long and fast?How can i stop biting my nails?
If you bite your nails, you're not alone. Lots of people share this habit for many different reasons, such as stress, boredom or a need for comfort. Some people even find themselves biting their nails when the nail grows too long, or gnawing at dead skin around their cuticles.

1. Keep a small tube of moisturizing cream and a soft emery board in your purse or desk, and a separate set in your car and at home. Use the cream several times a day to keep your skin soft and prevent cuticle tears (which might lead to nibbling) and the emery board to smooth out any rough spots (which could also induce you to chew them away - even though you know that never works).

2. Make a list of all the reasons you must quit biting your nails. Be as specific as possible, and don't pull any punches. Instead of writing, ';It doesn't look nice,'; try jotting down, ';Chewed nails look HORRIBLE and make people think that I completely lack self control.'; Be sure to include in your list all of the benefits you will enjoy upon succeeding, such as the ability to show off those beautiful rings on your beautiful fingers.

3. Use visual cues. One trick that worked for me was a clipped magazine picture of the late Princess Diana, after she received her engagement ring from Prince Charles. Remember that? She couldn't show off her ring properly because she bit her nails, so she had to clench her hand into a fist in order to let the photographers get a good look.

4. Explore the possibility of using a reward system. Attach small purchases to the length of time you've gone without nibbling. Before your quit date, brainstorm a list of little pleasures - anything from a glossy new fashion magazine or tube of expensive lip gloss to a professional manicure or even a massage. List as many potential rewards as possible. Then rank them in order of magnitude or expense, with the less expensive rewards first. Circle four that really appeal to you, and assign a different ';milestone'; to each one. For your first full day without nail biting, you may reward yourself with the new issue of Teen Magazine. For the first full week, you could buy the new Dior lip gloss. Maybe the first successful month earns you a massage at the local day spa, and six months equates to a full day of treatments. These are merely examples; the key to successful use of rewards is to pick rewards that make your heart beat a little faster.

5. Ask for help! Don't be afraid to enlist your relatives and good friends in your effort to achieve healthy nails. Tell them what you're doing and the date you plan to quit, and then ask them to call your attention to nibbling when they catch you with hands in your mouth. Ask your significant other or roommate to praise you when you resist the temptation of biting nails or when your nails get longer and healthier.

Follow these tips, and keep your commitment strong. Soon enough, you'll have healthy, beautiful nails.
