HOW I STOPPED BITING MY NAILS AND WHY IT'S A HUGE DEAL TO ME.

17.5.17



I have always seemed to bite my nails and for a lot of reasons. However I've found myself stopping and I am so proud.

How?
I used a nail treatment called 'No Bite Nail Treatment by Sinful Colours' which believe it or not I found in Poundland. I applied this at least every day and found myself leaving my nails alone. It has a weird bitter metal taste to it which I found stuck in your mouth for a good while. 

Why?
I used to bite my nails for a number of reasons but the most important one for me was because of my anxiety. I found that whenever I was anxious or scared in situations I wasn't comfortable with I would bite my nails till there was nothing left. Another reason would be that if I was bored such as waiting then I would find myself biting them as well.

Biting my nails when anxious has been something that I have done for so long that I can't remember when it started but I'm pretty sure it was when I started secondary school. I don't touch upon my anxiety a lot on this blog because I feel like It's something I'm scared to discuss. However since i've stopped biting my nails I feel like this is a sign that my anxiety is slowly and slowly going for the time being. 

Hence the reason of this title that I am proud. I'm proud of myself for not biting my nails because to me this means that I'm not as anxious has I have been only a few weeks prior.
