I started since i was like 12 and was a real bad nail biter. Often I'd find myself biting the nails untill the gray part ( the part you cut off) dissapeared and soon I'd bite into the pink part. At some point, I think, last year or two years ago I stopped for a good month or two, but started back after i got nervous about a test or something. I bite them because i'm bored or nevous. I think with all that extensive biting of the nails i mis-shapend the nail itself. Like the pink seems like it's been shortend by me biting. Will It ever grow back into it's previous size?
**Should do, i used to be a heavy nail biter from about 11 onwards, but now i have lovely talons :smile: **
im a HORRIBLE nail & skin biter. I started when i was four (im 14 now) so ive been doing it for ten years. right now almost half of each nail is gone. what i do is like... scrape it with my tooth sideways, so it gets all sharp and crappy, so i have to keep biting it to stop feeling like that:/ i got hold of some nail clippers yesteday too lol. right now some of the skin infront of all my nails is gone. Im not some wierdo who likes to cut themself, but i think it keeps me calm or busy. (to tell you the truth, i dont think i can quit anytime soon, im dependant now lol)
