I do the same thing. Thank god that skin heals really quick. It helps me if I keep a tooth brush/paste with me and brush my teeth/mouth every couple of hours to make the skin less "spongy" on the insides of my mouth. Mouth wash has helped me with this also. It just keeps the clean feeling longer and makes me not want to waste the "clean" feeling by chewing. I still do it sometimes till I can't stand the pain, but the brushing helps a lot.

I used to do the same thing when I was younger, expcept it was usually inside my mouth, though occassionally my lip. I would litterly bite my lips, and would often wind up with sores. I thought I was just prone to cold sores, but since I've stopped (Not sure why, I just seemed to quit for some reason) the cold sores, and other mouth sores have virtually disappered. I still chew on the inside of my lip sometimes when I am anxious.
