My name is Andrew; 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 started using your product the first day I got it and I'm still using it. One picture is from the first day I received your product and the other was taken at about 3 weeks in and the third is after about a month and a half. It's awesome having nails now because I don't have to hide my hands when we go out in public or waste money on false nails. I haven't had the urge to bite at all since using your product and I'm very grateful that you guys helped me stop that nasty habit. I will continue to use your product and send you pictures as I get further along. Thank you again for supplying this awesome product that's taste horrible lol. After my treatment is done I will start on my daughter which picked up my nasty habit. Thank you again a million times!! You guys are great!!!!
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 cuticals 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 cuticals 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
Here are pictures of before and after I used your product. It worked better than I ever would have thought.
Purchased Gold Star package and the product is awesome!! Stopped on the first day and haven't bitten since. Now the cream serves as a reminder any time I subconsciously put my fingers in my mouth.
I am sending you pictures... of course I am still using it. I have done it for about 3 weeks and this is how much they have grown. it is weird to have nails.. never had these things before. I am doing very well at not biting them... plus like I said This stuff is gross. =)
Thank You so much for this product.
Thank you for the AWESOME nail biting product you guys have sent.
It has helped me out so much. I have been biting my nails since I was in the third grade, I am now in the Air Force after completing two years of college - the whole time ripping into my nails. Then I stumbled across your site, took a chance, and after one week there was a huge difference in the way my nails/fingers looked. All I can do is thank you guys Hugely and continue to praise your product.
I have not been able to control my nail biting for years until your product came along.
It not only stops the nail biting, but also conditions and heals very nicely. I chewed my nails until they were bleeding and so sore, and I still could not stop! My nails and hands look so nice now.
I will always use your product...it is the best!
I just wanted to thank you for making such a wonderful product...finally after 23 years of nail biting....I stopped the first day! It has been 21 days exactly since I received your product and have stopped biting my nails. I was actually able to stick to my New Years resolution thanks to your product.
Thank you so much!!!!

Sarah Age 11
Well, here we are just over 3 weeks and Sarah has not bit at all and when she did slip her thumb in her mouth by mistake at night the taste awoke her and stopped her (this only happened once as she also wore a glove over her hand).
Her nails are too long for a little girl who takes piano and ballet and will just be turning 11 this coming Saturday. We wanted to take a picture and send it right away before we need to trim them so they don't cause a problem in piano or slash someone in ballet class by mistake. I'm really hoping these pics are good enough for you to use so that she can get the $25 - she is saving for a doll and it would go a long way toward it (and American Girl).
Plus, she not only quit the biting, but also stopped a lifelong and hereditary habit of thumb-sucking. We will keep using this product to stay the course and make sure the habit is firmly in place or anytime an urge might recur.
It's the best we've ever used! didn't think it would work really, but it has and my husband and I are amazed.
Is treatment effective?
Many recent scientific studies have shown that treatment for nail biting and thumb sucking orofacial myofunctional disorders can be 80 to 90% effective in correcting harmful oral habits.
These corrections are retained for years after completing therapy (Hahn & Hahn, 1992) More research links
It must be noted that successful completion of our program is dependent upon patient desire, consistency of application, a positive attitude and self discipline.
We give you the tools to help instill these attributes; our multi step Gold Star Program is included with every treatment plan.
Control-It! and our highly motivated Gold Star Program for children and adults has changed the way this habit is seen and treated with a whole new perspective, you are in control and it's easy
The sophisticated Gold Star Program is a radical departure from the old methods of nagging or painting nasty chemicals onto the nails. Rather, Control-It! is an all natural cream that uses a soothing, two pronged approach to the habit. The unique blend of all natural ingredients that provides a bitter taste to the nails more importantly delivers vitamins and nutrients to the nails and cuticles, ensuring rapid healing of hangnails that are often a trigger to bite.
The real innovation is the Gold Star Goals and Rewards program that encourages parents and adults to use simple, practical hands on methods, expanding parenting skills that will be used throughout life. We unleash your creativity, make it fun to learn by doing, and expand the self-mastery of inner growth, self expression and confidence. "Adult nail biters are just kids who never stopped."
Control-It! Anti-Nail biting cream is so advanced it's actually simple. Available at select drug and beauty chains nationwide.
Only the dedication and cooperation of the patient can change these harmful oral habits.
Control-It! is Hypoallergenic and clinically proven to be safe and effective. Truly dramatic results in just days, but, effective treatment must continue for a minimum of 21 -30 days of commitment to achieve both restored cuticles and nails, and effective elimination/replacement of the "habit".
I took a picture of my nails before using Control-It! and then took another picture five weeks later, I am a happy man! Thanks for the "new" look. Please feel free to share these photos on your website!

Product works great, but I ran out and am in danger of losing all progress!
Please FedEx overnight if possible.
Happy to report that my boy, is doing well and proud of his new nails. Eight years of nail biting brought to a screeching halt, with no brow-beating, no grounding, no threats...nothing more than gentle reminders to put the cream on his fingertips, for 21 days.

I just wanted to let you know that I am a devoted customer to your product after having tried both the regular and extra-strength “Control-It!” creams. Not only is your product effective and odor-free, but its claims of healing and moisturizing the cuticle area are 100% true.
Thanks again for a great product!
I am 53 years old, do not drink, smoke, gamble or cuss.
But I do, or did bite my nails. Have been since about 12 years old. Picked it up from an uncle who bit his.
I decided enough is enough, I have a 10 year old grandson who I do not want to get into the nailbiting habit.
Your product is great, I am on day 3, just knowing it is on has helped me to stop. I have bitten my nails till they bleed sometimes and hurt like heck. I realize I have a way to go to get regular looking nails back, but I do believe omega will break me. Thank you again
FOR 15 YEARS I CHEWED MY NAILS TILL THEY OFTEN BLEAD, I DID IT WITHOUT THINKING, I TRIED EVERYTHING EVEN HYPNOSIS BUT ALL IN VEIN UNTIL I DISCOVERED CONTROL IT.
THANK YOU, I NOW HAVE BEAUTIFUL NAILS.
Thanks! Good Job! Your product does a great job of both moisturizing and keeping me from nail biting. They look FANTASTIC!
