What are the Causes of Nail Biting Habit and How to Prevent It?

You have witnessed that many people, no matter how young or old, bite their nails, either in your circle or in your own family. Nail biting is a common habit. The main reasons for this habit are:

  • psychological problems
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • feeling of loneliness
  • Frustration
  • fear and anxiety
  • Lack of attention
  • When you feel under pressure
  • Bad events that happened in the past
  • Many factors such as boredom and restlessness are at play.

The habit of biting nails not only makes your hands look bad, but if it becomes persistent, it can also cause permanent damage to your teeth and gums.

In addition to the negative effects of this habit in terms of health, it also creates many negative effects in social life. First of all, people may find this behavior disgusting, they may condemn it, be the subject of ridicule, or be rebuffed.

The habit not only causes an aesthetically bad appearance but also can lead to social exclusion. As a result of this exclusion, the individual may feel lonely or under more stress and increase the habit of biting nails. Nail biting habit is a habit of psychological origin and a psychologist should be consulted for treatment.

How to Prevent Nail Biting Habit

  • Pay attention to the care of your hands, try to cut your nails shorter than usual and do not forget to file them. When you do these, your nails will become beautiful and you will be encouraged to get rid of your habit.
  • When you are stressed or anxious, instead of immediately putting your hands to your mouth, take a deep breath and try to manage stress first. Focus on finding solutions to the problem. Biting nails should not be the only solution.
  • 2- If you see that you start biting your nails when you are stressed or anxious, it means you should take the stress under control.
  • Many people often start biting their nails without realizing what they are doing. If you apply nail polish that gives a bitter taste to the nails, this can prevent you from doing so.
  • Sometimes you may be biting your nails without even realizing it. For this, try applying bitter nail polish on your nails.
  • If you immediately start biting your nails when you are free, try spending your energy on other things. For example, playing with a stress ball or doing other repetitive movements such as pulling rosary beads will help you get rid of your nail biting habit.
  • Apply neem oil to your nails and wait for it to dry. Even if you forget and put your hand to your mouth, you will not be able to bite your nail because of the bitter taste.
  • Another solution is to put a band-aid on the part of your nails where you bite.

You can get rid of the habit of biting your nails by trying these methods.
