personal triumph

I've stopped biting my fingernails. It's kind of a big deal. I've been biting them pretty much my entire life, to the degree that the nail tip was generally over half an inch below the tip of my finger. Now they look like this.

How the heck did you DO IT? I just took off gel nails (not easy) and still was pretty good and then stressed out yesterday and was back at square one. I may ahve to put the fakes back on but there has to be a point where I stop, right???

What I did was to get a bottle of clearcoat - actually, I got the kind that has a growth agent in it, too, on the theory that it might be helpful - and have it with me ALL the time. Instead of chewing my nails, I chewed and scraped the clearcoat off with my teeth - and then put it right back on. That's all. And now that they are long I am really scrupulous about keeping them smooth, because if there's even a tiny little edge I'll feel it and start chewing it.
