UpsidedownKayak, Zmeilerr was talking about me! Can't blame Hanimon though, sinkholes can be a bit ambiguous, even when they have that pink line around their photos! Oh, and the garlic is supposed to smell and taste bad, that's what helps people stop biting their nails. He doesn't need to rub the garlic over his nails, there's special clear nail polish with garlic. Sure, it would probably look odd in a man, but it would definitely stop him from biting his nails.

29 - Do you even know why people bite their nails? If they're out and they get the urge, they're not going to stop chewing to think, "Hey, maybe I should clip my nails instead!" Clear, foul-smelling nail polish will work, but it will look weird on a dude. I'm sure there are remedies for males so they don't have to resort to the female remedy.

He's not supposed to clip his nails when he's out and gets the urge, he has to maintain them short. If there's never much nail left to bite, he'll probably stop at some point. Sure, the nail polish might look weird on him, but, then again, it will help him stop so that he doesn't have to keep wearing it. However, there are other options, such as creams and oils that work as deterrents too, and that would most likely be a better choice for him.

True, though I've seen many people continue biting even when their nail has been bitten down to the quick. I've seen some go further and gnaw on their cuticles.

Yeah, I've seen that too, especially in men. I think that the best think he can do is try to keep his hands busy, chew gum (even if that's not particularly good for his health or his teeth) and/or look for a deterrent that could work for him.

Sinkhole is correct. If there isn't much nail left to bite, then they might stop the habit. I did. But Steff is also correct. It depends on the "type" of nail bitter. Some do it out of nervousness. Not even pain would stop them.

that's true but imagine a guy with super shiny nails. my mom actually thought I put clear nail polish on my toenails because it was so shiny, the real cause being me filing my toenails since they looked horrendously embarrassing
