I realized nail biting is mostly a lonesome and shameful habit. Not one you would talk about in social events, at your job, in the gym locker room, or just about anywhere, 9 minute nail biting cures wanted to create a place where nail biters could go in private and get help and give help in the company of other nail biters. And I’m especially proud of kicking the habit. Give it a try and don’t be hard on yourself if you don’t succeed immediately, just keep on trying and think about freedom it will bring you once you make it.

I finally found something that breaks the nail biting habit. I wish I found out about this product a lot sooner.

Do you have the bad habit of biting your fingernails (or toenails, for that matter)? It is surprisingly true that out of every ten Americans more than two have acquired the fingernail biting habit.

Nail Biting Dilemma & Cure

First, some facts from the experts:

It has been established that many people bite their nails in their sleep, some times only in their sleep, never when awake. This has been linked to stress while dreaming, or stress from the dream, or simply plain old stress. It is thought to be the most widespread form of mild self mutilation, according to Wikipedia.

Where a nail has been bitten too far in, bleeding might occurat the grooves or cuticles. More importantly, the continuous wetting of the fingers can lead to a nasty yeast infection in the nail, and even worse, oral herpes can actually begin to grow on the finger. Ridging, nail deformity and yes, even nail loss is likely to occur. Bacterial infections can also lead to severe dental problems such as gingivitis, said Onychophagia.com.

So you bite your nails often? Do you find it impossible to stop?

Hey, welcome to the club. Nail biting is mostly among children although adults are not excluded from this nervous habit. Famous nail biters are everywhere, & include Tom Cruise, Bruce Springsteen, Lisa Marie Presley, and George W. Bush to name a few.

This irritating habit is more common in boys than girls, and can be seen during periods of nervousness, stress, hunger, boredom or lack of activities. In some cases, it can be a sign of a mental or emotional disorder.

One day I was looking at my nails. No big deal, I have been biting my nails for over 40 years. Did I know why I bite my nails? No, not right away, but I realized I needed to stop biting them. I knew that I would be meeting important people and it would be rather embarrassing to shake hands with ugly, raggednails.

But here’s the dilemma… If you have ever attempted to quit your nail biting habit, you know just how difficult it is. Perhaps you have put on gloves or bandages over your fingertips, or tried bitter-flavored nail polish. Maybe they were successful for a little while, but ultimately you found yourself with chewed-up nails and torn cuticles again.

The first step in stopping this habit is to identify what is causing it, and resolving whatever problems you have. That’s were programs that teach how to stop nail biting with hypnosis are so valuable. In the past these programs were out of reach of most people, & required a lengthy (& expensive) visit, or multiple visits to a licensed hypnotherapist, but nowadays they are within reach of everyone, due to the advent of & self hypnosis programs on a DVD.

One simple Google search for ways to stop finger nail biting was all it took. The website convinced me & I made a simple online purchase & have not regretted spending a penny of it since.

All I can tell you is it worked for me. 40 years of embarrassing & ugly chewed on fingernails & one little purchase of a self hypnosis program, (that I did entirely from my home & entirely at my own pace), & I never even think about biting my nails at all now.
