Nail Biting Hypnosis Script

Nail biting is a constant compulsion for many people. Biting fingernails, sucking nails, chewing nails all lead to ugly hands, bad nails and loss of function. The nail biting habit is unconscious and automatic. Many nail biters are ashamed of their habit but don't know how to stop. Every nail biter is different. Some people only bite their nails occasionally, some bite their nails all the time. Most nail biting cures like creams and barriers only work for a short time, and then the habit starts again.

Stop nail biting hypnosis

Nail biting is a nervous habit associated with stress. Hypnosis removes the cause of the nail biting. This script works because each section of the script deals with a different psychological aspect of nail biting. The script has a guide to how each section works and what work each line is doing.

Alter the script to suit each individual's particular habits. The Nail Biting hypnosis script can be adapted to deal with ending thumb sucking, skin picking and hair pulling.
