Break the nail biting habit
“Will you stop biting your nails!” Every kid has heard that at some time or another. But it’s annoying and embarrassing when the habit goes on and on, regardless of the number of times you ‘decide’ to stop!
So you’re sat there watching TV or worrying about something and without even noticing you’re doing it, you find that you’ve chewed your nails back into that ugly, painful condition again. Perhaps you have tried deterrents in the past, nail varnish or the foul tasting coating you can get to assist you with changing you habit but still can’t stop.
And that’s the problem – the nail biting is ‘unconscious’ – you do it without even noticing. So when you make a ‘conscious’ decision to stop nail biting, nothing happens – the cure has to happen in a different way.
The decision to stop nail biting has to take place at an unconscious level!
Hypnosis can help you permanently change your behaviour and make the choice to stop nail biting in Hertfordshire, a real one that will last a life time. Hypnosis helps us to talk directly to your subconscious mind where we can suggest new patterns of behaviour which will be acted upon more easily than just using willpower alone.
We all know the difference between how it feels when we say we’re going to do something and when we know we’re going to do it. When you cure nail biting properly, the urge to bites your nail disappears – there simply is no struggle!
Easy exercise to try today!
You’ve just caught yourself red handed with your fingers in your mouth, how does it make you feel when you catch yourself in the act? Some people will find they are left with a bundle of negative emotions, perhaps you will berate yourself or maybe even punish yourself in some way.
A quick way to curb your habit is to think of something you really hate on your fingers. Here are a few examples of what could work for you:
- Cigarette ash
- Hoover bag contents
- Mud and dirt
- Raw meat
Maybe you can think of other things that you would want to wash off before you put your fingers in your mouth?
We will use cigarette ash as our example. Take a few slow breaths, close your eyes and imagine yourself (it is not recommended to do this physically, some substances can be damaging to your health) dipping your fingers into a full ashtray, really imagine digging your fingers around until you can actually feel the ash building up under your nails.
Now take your fingers out and look at how disgusting they are, smell that awful over powering scent and imagine slowly raising your fingers to your mouth. As you open your mouth and take the first bite you can feel the ash on your lips, taste it on your tongue and as you bite off that first nail you are over come with repulsion, aren’t you?
If you’re not, perhaps you need to add another disgusting ingredient. You can repeat this process until you feel repulsed when you think of putting your fingers in your mouth. If you gag when you think of your fingers going into your mouth then you’re doing it correctly. You are trying to provoke a physical reaction, the stronger the reaction the more effective this technique will be.
This is a very powerful tool that can assist you in achieving your goal to stop nail biting in Hertfordshire. It might not stop you completely but it will help you to think again the next time you find yourself absentmindedly beginning to chew your nails.
