How to Stop Biting Your Cuticles

By June 21, 2013

Follow me on:

Many of us have a little bit of OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), otherwise known as "nervous habits" in us. My nervous habit when I was younger and had long hair was to tug on a portion of hair and run it above the top of my lip. I loved the feeling because it was so soft but my grandmother gave me the hardest time about it. "Stop chewin' on your hair!" she'd say in her Texas accent, "there was a 9-year-old girl at church who chewed on her hair until she got a stomachache and they had to do surgery and they found a BALL OF HAIR in her stomach." <p>

I have a ton of friends who bit their nails and chew on their cuticles. A friend of mine taught me a little trick to stop this. She keeps cuticle oil in her purse and rubs it into her cuticles every time she feels like biting them. She also gets her nails painted on a regular basis. She won't bite her nails if she just spent $20 on them.

Thank you for this tip. It is very timely. My cuticles are a disaster. I’ll give them some TLC instead of Teeth!

I’ve been trying to grow my nails out for over a year, but because I bite them, I always get sidetracked. It can be rather expensive to keep them manicured on a regular basis, but I agree that if I’ve just spent money to get them done, I am more conscious about not biting them- and now they’re finally growing out!

I believe what you wrote made a ton of sense.

But, consider this, what if you typed a catchier post title?
I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t solid., however what if
you added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean How to Stop Biting Your Cuticles is kinda vanilla.
You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article titles to get people to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to get people excited about everything’ve written.
In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.
