Remind your hubby of all the germs that are under his nails (even with frequent hand washing) that he is putting into his mouth!
When he is out pottering in the garden – remind him.
When he comes out of the toilet – remind him.
When he scratches his head – remind him.
When he is changing the oil in the car – remind him.
When he is painting something – remind him.
Any activity he does remind him, that’s getting under your fingernails then into your mouth!
Eventually he will be so disgusted , or sick of hearing it , that he will stop.
You may even find some videos on YouTube to show him.
Otherwise a chat with your doctor could do the trick.
I stopped after my parents constantly reminded me about all the germs I was putting into my mouth. I am now over 20 years nail biting free!
