Hello, all- I don't want to cause anyone to give up hope, but I am 55 years old and still have a problem with nail biting, feet-picking, etc. It is so difficult to get beyond this! And on top of it all, I am an alcoholic, with a long history of child sexual abuse, emotional abuse, PTSD, etc. And I teach dance (so having my feet in decent condition is rather important). Anyway, do not give up hope....I have had several periods of "wellness", where I did none of the above: did not pick either fingers or feet, and did not drink. So it is possible to get better. Right now, I am not in a very good place, but am still hopeful that things will get better. (We humans just refuse to give up hope, right?) Those times were really great, and I am hoping to get to that once again. Good luck to all of you that are suffering. I had no idea there were sop many people like me out there. It helps to know I am not alone.
