I have a huge problem and I can’t get myself to stop. I bite my lips all day long. And it’s to the point where I bleed. I know it’s a terrible habit and I don’t know how to stop. I do it when I’m happy, sad, bored, mad…there’s no telling.
If I put fake nails on it helps but it ruins my nails to the point that I have to grow them out for a year becauase they are so damaged.
I know it takes 21 days to break a bad habit, so any bees out there that have suggestions on what to do to stop?

Wait, I’m confused. Are you biting your lips or your nails?

Ooh I bite my lips too! I’m working on trying to stop as well.
When I catch myself I stop right away. Chapstick/lipstick etc helps me. I carry chapstick around with me constantly and put it on often and it keeps me from biting. All you have to remember is it’s an oral fixation so when you catch yourself doing it try chewing gum, chapstick, chewing on something else (pen?)
