Hey, Former Nail-Biters, How Did You Quit?

Please, share your secrets.

Hello friends, these are my stubs.

I am sorry if this image offends you. I don't feel great about it either! I've been biting my nails (and cuticles) for about as long as I've been sentient, and I'm totally sick of doing so. It makes me feel young and helpless and more than a little gross, but it's just so damn satisfying โ€” one of those habits that seems like it should be easy to kick but always winds up creeping right back.

So, former nail-biters of the world, tell me: what method helped you quit?

Maybe you came up with a rewards system.

2 stop biting my nails: angry Kanye each day I bite and happy Kanye when I don't. Cant have Kanye disappointed in me

Maybe you bought some of that gross-tasting nail polish that's meant to keep your fingers out of your mouth.

Whatever you tried, I want to hear about it! Leave a comment in the Dropbox below.

I'll be testing some of the best suggestions for possible inclusion in a future BuzzFeed post.
