Nail Biting, is it Delicious?
Why do some people bite their nails?
Nail Biting or clinically named as Chronic Onychophagia is very common here in Kuwait especially among men, when I first arrived here 4 years ago, I was really astounded when I saw people who bite their nails because this is not common in my own country unless for children, then my hubby explained to me that it is normal here to see that habit. For me it is really unsanitary and it should be avoided since it may lead to infection or disfiguration of the nails.
People who have this habit usually do it during boredom, anxiety, stress or nervousness. This starts from childhood years and it will gradually improved as the person matures. However, some children will remain biting their nails until they grow up, so the best thing to do is to stop this habit during the early years.
