Yes, it's true. I seem to have stopped biting my fingernails. I am assuming that is because I am less tense since getting my own place. I didn't even realize I wasn't doing it (much like you don't realize you are doing it) until my left thumbnail started sort of hitting stuff. Understand that I have been a devoted nail biter my entire life (so I guess I can't really blame it on roommate / ex tension). Yes, it is a rather gross, germy habit...I can think of worse ones, but nonetheless I recognize its unattractiveness. But, maybe that is all behind me now! I can have actual fingernails!
I can pretty much guarantee that they will never look like this:However, I might be able to offer you a good back scratch one of these days. Wish me continued success please and tell me about a habit that you were able to overcome...or that you want to overcome! Thanks :-D
