Don, biting your fingernails is just a bad habit that usually happens without you being aware of what you’re doing. The best would be to get something like these bitter nail varnishes that will remind you what you’re doing whenever you start biting them. There is nothing magic in nails that will make you addicted, so all you need to do is to break the habit and you’ll be OK. Good luck.
