My name is Mike; I am a 22 year-old college student and I have bitten my nails ever since I stopped sucking my thumb. I have never seen nails more disgusting than mine used to be (see pictures). I had tried the no-bite nail polish before, but I ended up biting right through it - your product worked like a charm though! The attached pictures were taken about 6 weeks from each other. I still have some work to do, but I'm very excited with the progress thus far! Thanks so much, I couldn't have done it without CONTROL-IT!
I am enclosing photos of my new nails. I bit my nails for as long as I can remember which is at least 35 years. I would often rip out the cuticles and get infections, and many mornings my fingers would really hurt from biting the nails back so far.
I started applying the Omega 3 cream as soon as I got it. Despite some very stressful events, I stuck with it even when it would have been a lot more comfortable to slip back into old habits. I stuck with it, and after a week, I found that I had gotten past the unconscious habit of putting my fingers in my mouth. I haven't used it since, but I also haven't bitten them either. The cuticles are almost entirely healed now, and in a few more weeks they will look perfect. I have even had to trim the nails a few times already.
I can't tell you how much better I feel about myself now. Not only do I feel better that I don't look like a nervous wreck chewing at my own digits, I can also do presentations up close with customer and not be embarrassed by my ugly fingers. But the biggest benefit of all is that I proved to myself I could change a long-standing, deep-seated habit. No more will I accept other people telling me they can't stop smoking, or lose weight, or whatever. If I can stop biting my nails after 35 years, what else is possible?
Hmmm....Could I start my own business? Improve my relationship? Exercise regularly?
My horizons have opened up, so thank you so much for freeing me!
Best regards and many thanks, Wayne F
