Nail Biting

I've been biting my nails since I was a little boy. When i watch sports I bite my nails. When I played sports in high school I bit my nails. Alot of the time I don't even realize I'm doing it. This may be gross, but I even clip my toe nails, and eat them. When I was younger I'd eat the skin off of the bottom of my feet. Sometimes to the point where they would bleed. I still do this sometimes, but I have to use a nail clipper sometimes. I don't know how to stop, so it will probably continue until I find something to help me stop.

When I first saw what you wrote there, I think I felt really relieved. You see, I have the exact same problem, and I can't seem to stop. I used to actually bite my toe nails when I was younger, but I have resorted to clipping my nails (both fingers and toes) just for the pleasure of chewing them. I don't know why I do that, and whenever I do it, I know I'm doing it and that I should stop, but my hands don't want to listen. :/
