Nail biting, also known as onychophagy or onychophagia, is an oral compulsive habit. It is sometimes described as a parafunctional activity, the common use of the mouth for an activity other than speaking, eating, or drinking.

Nail biting is very common, especially amongst children. Less innocent forms of nails biting are considered an impulse control disorder in the DSM-IV-R and are classified under obsessive-compulsive and related disorders in the DSM-5. The ICD-10 classifies the practice as "other specified behavioral and emotional disorders with onset usually occurring in childhood and adolescence".[1] However, not all nail biting is pathological, and the difference between harmful obsession and normal behavior is not always clear.[2]

I used to gnaw mine pretty viciously down to the quick as a kid but, as an adult, I only gnaw when they get too long Chuckle

I know a few people like that Sky. They use these instead of regular clippers.

Many many moons ago I had a nail biting problem. Then I started just clipping them short so that there was nothing to bite and now I'm 'out of the habit' of doing so. I just keep them neatly trimmed and file off the rough patches left from the clippers.
Thanks for letting me borrow those nail clippers this morning.  I'd broken three nails opening pistascho nuts for breakfast.
