Day 7: I think that today is the end of my first week of this challenge! I feel so proud of myself; it’s a huge thing for me. Tonight I pushed my cuticles and treated them with cuticle oil. It’s amazing how much longer doing this makes the nails appear! I do think that my nails have grown ever so slightly since the start; it’s only just starting to become noticeable as of today. 

So far I’ve only been REALLY tempted once. When this happened, I took it out on the cuticles instead of the nails. The urge to bite something, anything, to feel something crumble within my teeth, was too strong. This coming week I will be trying my best to resist the fixation I have with biting any tissue I can clamp my incisors on. On the down side, I have an awful sore on my chest from a pimple scab gone wrong. It’s time to wait it out, let it heal itself and stop imagining I can ‘fix’ it by picking at it. It’s time to stay positive. I’m proud of myself. Here’s to a good week! 

Best of luck and well wishes to anyone in their efforts for biting/picking/anything. We can make this week a winner xox
