my BAD habit!!!

I want to control or resist my habit which is NAIL BITING damn!grrrrrrrr. Sometimes i cant help but bite my nail in times of stress or excitement, or in times of boredom or inactivity. No one in my family did this Nail Biting. So where did i get this HABIT.DAMN!!.. I bite my nail without realizing that i am doing it. And i want to help my self to control this habit. I browse articles, stories, information about nail biting. And i hope it will help me to stop this BAD HABIT. Here are some simple information about NAIL Biting.

Nail-biting is the most common of the typical "nervous habits," which include thumb-sucking, nose-picking, hair-twisting or -pulling, tooth-grinding, and picking at skin. nail biting is a body focused repetitive behavior that results in the destruction of one's own fingernails and often the skin around the nails and cuticles. Nail-biting is fairly common, but for some it is more than just a bad habit. It can become quite serious, as people who suffer from compulsive nail-biting may experience bleeding, bruises, infections, or even permanent damage to the fingers. The behavior is often unconscious, and people with this compulsion may have difficulty stopping because they may be unaware of their actions. Compulsive Nail Biting is also called onychophagia. Compulsively biting just the skin is called dermatophagia. Theses behaviors are classified by psychiatrists as a type of impulse control disorder. Compulsive nail biting is often observed in people suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder and body dysmorphic disorder. The most well-understood form of compulsive self-mutilation is trichotillomania or hair pulling, and this also tends to disproportionately afflict people with OCD. Because it is a repetitive behavior and common in people with obsessive-compulsive disorder, is sometimes considered a related OC spectrum disorder. These disorders tend to run in families.

What treatments are available for nail-biting?

  • Keep your nails trimmed and filed
  • Try stress-management techniques if you bite your nails because you are anxious or stressed.
  • Men can use a clear polish. Wearing artificial nails may stop you from biting your nails and protect them as they grow out.
