have you ever had enhancements on and if so did you bite them too.

try to stick to just 2 nails...and leave the others alone...say your two pinkies....then as you see the others growing nicely it might help you to stop all together....ohhh and just keeping reminding yourself off all the nasty little germs under those nails that you are nibbling on...ughhhh

its a habit at the end of the day and its going to be hard to break...but thats what habits are for..breaking. You can do it.

If you don't always realise you are doing it put the brightest nail polish that you can find on your nails, then every time you put your hand to your mouth you will notice the bright colour and it will remind you to stop biting them hth

i have found that with some nail biters they don't tend to bite there enhancements ...
1 cos they have paid for them...
2 cos they don't get the same satisfaction and
3 cos they are all nice and even...(nail biters tend to have this thing about rough/odd/messy bits...they keep going till its all smooth....if there is a bit thats longer or uneven then its that they chew on till its gone.

i agree with angie-bagpuss
enhansments are a deterant. keep them smooth and neat, have weekly infills untill the free edge has grown then wrap your own nails :) we all love a challenge

Enhancements are the solution... I have many reformed nail bitters.. none of them touch their nails... some have gone on to have long natural nails that they never bite again (its about breaking the habbit) others just love how pretty their hands are and stare at them constantly but never bite them again.
