Post Nail biting

I didn't realise that hurting myself felt good... I thought biting my nails was just a reflex. But then, I realised that I only stopped when I was told to. Plus, when I wanted to leave my basket-ball practices in the past, I used to bite my lips until I started bleeding badly. Then, I would spread the blood on a part of my body to make it look like I was wounded. How many of you bite their nails to the flesh?

I'm 16, I like to talk about anything and I'm ready for anything.Please don't be affraid to chat with me!

I bit my nails for a short time years ago, but not down to the flesh. It's a very bad habit and if you don't stop, they could get infected. There are many old tricks to keep from nail-biting--one I've heard frequently is coating your nails with some kind of clear nail product that will taste bitter and prevent you from wanting to bite them. I'm not sure what products are safest to use and work best as I never had to do this myself, but it can't be hard to find one.

I bite my nails but not like that. Whenever I have the white part growing is when i bite it never to the flesh.

I don't like to bite nails. It's actually a bad habit.

I bite them when the white part grows out. But they end up getting shorter and shorter. I end up biting on the skin all around my nails too which can get painful

IDK I must lead a super wonderful life. I have many of the same problems and pressures as most all of you do. I was taught to look for good in people and life and to tough out and sort through my problems and not let them change my life or get me down and out. I hope that all people can get better and figure out life isn't that bad. I wish you good luck and strength to overcome man.

I bite my nails, but its not self harm. Its just a habit. I don't even notice that i'm doing it. I really wouldn't consider nail biting a form of self harm. All of my friends do it and they are all perfectly happy.

I bit my nails for a little while, but definitely never to the point of hitting flesh or making myself bleed. Maybe are you nervous or anxious about something? I think that's why I did it for a bit.

I think maybe you are too used to having nail chewing as a stimulus to help forget what is currently happening. It can be addicting too to be focused on chewing on that bit and that indescribable sense of achievement when you draw blood or get that bit of nail/flesh/skin off. Maybe instead of seeking a physical stimulus you could try a mental one or actively remind yourself not to chew your nails?
