Nail biters! Your turn is here to hear a few words that we hope could help you let go of your horrible habit because it is not only gross but also dangerous and can seriously harm your well-being.
We understand that you can’t control it because according to psychiatrists, nail-biting is categorized as an impulsive control disorder, and it even has a medical term; Onychophagia. Basically, you can’t control the urge to resist an impulse or a temptation that could harm you in some way.
Psychiatrists also believe that it is an obsessive-compulsive disorder that grows with us since childhood or teenage years. Once we become adults, nail-biting becomes a lifelong habit and our nails turn to sad pieces that reflect our stress. In some cases, professional help is needed!
If you are a nail biter, then there is a possibility that you suffer from nervousness, stress, or anxiety. All of these feelings trigger you to start biting your nails in order to calm down, but seriously, do you?
