Simple, but hard work: It just takes constant willpower to stop picking your nails. You need to be aware of each time that you feel like picking at your nails, and figure out in that situation something else you can do instead. For example, each time that you feel like picking at your nails, take out a nail file and just gently smooth the edge of the nail, and the urge will pass. Also, make sure you are using hand lotion after each time you wash your hands, which will keep your hands and nails moisturized. You should generally keep your nail edges filed smooth, so that there are no little bits that are tempting to start to pick, and there are no rough parts that will snag on things or break off. After a couple of days you will start to see the difference in the health of your nails, and then you just have to keep at it every day. After about 2 months of not picking your nails, that actually becomes your new habit, and you just have to stay on top of those situations where you want to go back to the comfort of the habit of picking and keep dealing with it.What's a good way to stop the habit of picking your nails?
I actually take the Vitaman Gelatin...It helps make your nails strong and they are tougher to bite off
i used to have this problem too. i stopped it by picking up another bad habit. good luck.
oh...my name is kristen too =)
Get fake nails put on so the real ones can grow underneath and you wont be able to bite them.
