I second the band aids, lots and lots and lots, it great the look people give you when you walk into work with bandaids on most of you fingers, you can imagine them guessing at some bizarre incident. i do my nails, paint, them, file them, buff them cut them, works for a few days, then i get fed up wii is brilliant for it, keeps my hands v busy and can get my frustration out boxibng on wii i wear those moisturising gloves, quite useful, but you cant do anything while your wearing them i bake or cook things use peel off facial masks pick at other things, like dried glue or paint peeling off things mostly things only work when im conscious of what im doing, most of the time i dnt even know that i pick!
