I use my thumbnail to push my lip in so I can rip the skin off them with my teeth. My lips are always chapped and awful looking because I pretty much eat them off, to the point they crack and bleed. It’s horrible.

I count stairs too or sometimes just randomly I’ll start counting my steps. I’ve even counted how many times I bounce my leg. Counting steps and stairs has gotten better when I started exercising and also since I work at a desk job but it would get bad and I even annoyed myself. Oh gosh this thread makes me wonder if I need OCD meds lol.

@SweetMelissa429: Lol I mess with my eyelashes so you’re not weird for that at all! I also pick at my nails. And this isn’t really a nervous thing, more of just a random habit, but I play with my ears a lot and rub my stomach. . Fiance thinks it’s so cute when he sees me rubbing my tum or playing with my ears in the middle of our convos.

i bite my nails, but not just my nails like the whole finger, skin and all. Its disgusting and makes my fingers look horrible but I’ve done it since I was little and cannot stop!! I’ve tried everything from “dont bite it” to gloves. Currently I have fake nails (acrylic) and i’m doing pretty well, although i still like put them in my mouth, but my fingers are healing. I hope I can keep it up for the wedding, no one wants to see the bride having horrible fingers when she shows off her ring!

I have a few! I bite down really hard on pen lids at work and sometimes I flick my pen back and forth. I also clench my teeth badly and sigh a lot. I must be a real joy to work with! A guy I work with has a nervous tendency of holding his arms close by his side and flipping his hand when he talks. It reminds me of a penguin 🙂

I pull out my eyelashes too…almost every day…I don’t wear mascara to work but when I am wearing mascara I have to tell my SO to keep an eye on me. I also pick on the skin between my thumb & finger on my right hand. Don’t know why I do it, but I do. Sometimes to the point where it gets past all the layers of skin and bleeds. (Sorry it this is TMI)

Same here. I’ve got blood stains on several articles of clothing from the carnage I wreak upon my cuticles. I used to bite my nails, but I have TMJ (most likely from all of the flesh nibbling I do) so it hurts a lot to bite through my nails these days.
I also chew on the inside of my cheeks. My ex called me a cannibal.
