    For As Long As I Can Remember

    I have chewed my fingers all my life, and I still do it. I'm 54 years old. I use my teeth to pull the dead skin off my fingers around the fingernails, and I eat it. I know it is a bad, nasty habit, but I have not been able to break it. When I was a kid, my parents painted my...
