    Do you bite your nails or only the skin around your nails? Some of my friends bite their nails, but I've only seen a few who bite the skin instead, including me (when I'm super nervous)

    I used to bite my nails lots, but I got fed up of biting too far and the nail hurting for a day or so. So then I tried to stop but I couldn't. Then I got quite self conscious about them. Eventually I managed to stop biting them as much. Most of my nails now show about 1-2mm of white, apart from one which I can't seem to stop biting.

    If someone had told me that biting your nails shortens the nail bed and makes the nail go white much before the end of your finger I probably wouldn't have bitten them as much.

    I've noticed this with mine. I really hate biting my nails but I can't seem to stop myself.

    I used to bite the skin around my nails all the time, but it got so raw and painful that I've just given up without really thinking about it. I rarely bite the nails themselves; occasionally, if they look long and I can't find a pair of nail clippers, I tear the ends off (with my other nails), but that often goes wrong, so I try to avoid it!

    That's bad... I'd be so self conscious with fingers like that, probably have to wear gloves...
