Thanks to this writing prompt for the idea for today’s post.
I have a bad habit that I’ve been trying to break for almost my whole life. I’ve tried to quit numerous times. I’m hoping by writing this down here I can hold myself more accountable and actually stick to quitting!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve bitten my nails. I do it when I’m bored, nervous, anxious, not paying attention- you name it. It’s gross. I know it’s gross. I even see other people doing it and think it looks gross. Not to mention I could probably have avoided several sicknesses in my life just by keeping my hands out of my mouth!
I’d like nothing more than pretty fingernails- and hands that don’t hurt from the chewing they receive on a daily basis (see- gross!)
So, I’m planning on painting my nails and stocking up on chewing gum. The combination of the two seems to give me the best chance at quitting. Throw a little evening knitting into the mix, and hopefully by the end of this month I can have some normal looking fingernails again.
And if you happen to see me with my fingers in my mouth, just slap my hand away, OK?
