two ideas:

Keep nail clippers with you at all times. Only helps deal with 'that tempting bit' or for damage control

long term, expensive solution: Hypno-therapy

I've been biting my nails for the past 9 years, and haven't been able to stop. I stopped once a year ago, for about a month, but started again.

I'm actually in the process of quitting again, it's been about a week or so, and I just trimmed them down with nail clippers for the first time in a long time, heh.

As many people here have said, you don't realize you're biting them until you've chewed them down a bit. I've used the nail polish stuff(mine was called 'Nail Biter'), it works, but man it tastes horrible.

Also, the thing about wanting to bite off certain parts so they'll look and feel better, is very true. But I try to clip them rather than bite them, now(it doesn't make it feel the same, but it helps).

The other thing I find, it just doesn't feel comfortable anymore. With normal nails, it doesn't feel right unless they're short. Which is why I want to bite them down.

But anyway, I hope that you can break the habit.

Has anyone actually tried hypnotism? This should be exactly the sort of thing it's good for.

Hypnotherapy is not cheap however, and it doesn't work for everyone.
