    A Bad Habit

    I choose to bite my fingernails. I believe that it is much easier to remove, then using a nail clipper. I bite them everyday, till a red mark appears there. I know that it is bad to bite fingernails, but I can't control it. It is like an obsession.

    I Dont Want to Stop.

    I Always Have

     For as long as I can remember, I have bitten my nails. There is no white part, only pink. if my nails are rough on the edge, it will bother me all day so i just do it to smooth that edge, which of course makes it rough again, and it's a vicious cycle...

    Hardest Habit To Break

    I have bitten my fingernails for as long as I can remember. When I go to vacuum my vehicle there are pieces of fingernails all under my seat when I bite them and drop them into the floor. If I am nervous or anxious that is when it is the worst. The worst part is that I often...

    Since Forever

    I must have the ugliest fingernails in Europe. I've had this annoying habit ever since I was young, and I can't find a way to stop it. No matter how disgusting it sounds; it's an addiction. I do it the most when I'm very bored, or very stressed out. I don't just bite my nails, I...
