28 things - thing 13



nail chewing from love elycia on Vimeo.


As a kid I was a major nail biter. I actually remember making the decision to start biting my nails. I read the book 'The Berenstain Bears and the Bad Habit' and decided that I needed a bad habit. I was a weird kid. I have been an on and off nail biter ever since. I think it's totally gross but sometimes I just can't keep my nails out of my mouth! Normally now I just kind of chew on the edges once in a while instead of actually biting them. I usually don't even notice I'm doing it!

Any nail biters out there? Fellow nail chewers?

  1. I'm the same way..an off an on nail biter. Though I usually don't do it when people are around but when I'm bored at home. So you are not alone! Though it's a major pet peeve when someone is just going at it with biting their nails and cleaning them in public. I got stuck seating next to someone to me in class and the WHOLE time he was picking and biting his nail it was so gross.

  2. I bite my nails. I hate that I do it, but mostly I'm not aware that I do it like when I'm driving long distances. My stepmom once told me that you can get liver cancer from biting your nails and that still didn't keep me from doing it.

  3. haha the berenstain bears, LOVED them growing up! not a nail bitter but a lip picker which is so gross...wearing lipstick or chap stick really helps kick that habit! ok you were weird... try this one on...i had once started to eat paper because a friend was doing it and i thought it might be fun so i tried it for a while..didnt stick! i also LOVED to chew the perler beads..http://www.makingfriends.com/perler_crafts.htm...remember those! i have plenty of more weird kid stories about myself! hehehe

  4. No! Gross! My husband does it too and it drives me crazy. Actually, the act of chewing one's nails is not so much what makes me want to kill myself but the sound that it makes. I have to say that I really admire your openness throughout as I read your 28 things from day to day. I'm loving it and I'm loving you.

  9. I used to be a nail biter, but I quit a few years ago. Now I pick at my cuticles. I think that might be worse.

  10. I've been biting my nails for as long as I can remember. Like you, I don't usually realize I'm doing it! I stopped for a few months and then something must have triggered the nail bitting because I started again :(

  17. If I break a nail over the next few days I'll slowly bit off all the rest of them. If my hands and nails look nice then I'll leave them alone, but there's something about having a nail that's way shorter than the rest. I just can't leave that finger to be the outcast. That's just mean.

  20. I can take that one step further. I still bite my nails, but when I was a kid my mom used that bitter nail polish stuff to get me to stop. I was also a thumb sucker (for way too long) and she would use that bitter stuff on my thumb. I would just suck that stuff off then go about my nail biting business. Then my gram told me I would get worms in my poop if I didn't stop and it scared me so I stopped...for a year or so until I forgot that worm poop story.

  24. I can not bite my nails. I just do not like the sensation it creates! I sometimes flick the corners of my nails with my teeth though when I'm thinking.

    PS I mentioned & linked back to your 28 things posts on my blog here;

  25. I don't know if it was that book in particular, but I remember at one point also deciding that I needed a bad habit!! I tried nail biting, but it never caught on--later I found bad habits of my own (picking on my lips and the skin around my nails--it's totally gross but I do it whenever I have idle hands!)

  27. I still bite my nails. I need to tell everyone in the world that if they see me biting my nails, they need to smack me immediately. This wont work when I'm alone though, and I usually do it when nobody's around. Bad idea....nevermind. Adorable blog! I'm so glad I found it. And you are adorable. :)
