Anyone got any tips - I am 70 so been doing t a while now. Am experimenting with an elbow brace which makes it physically impossible but only as long as I wear it so not a long term fix

    Hypnosis, must be worth a try?

    You can buy a bitter-tasting, colourless and dull-finish nail varnish which is supposed to repel the taste buds. I did it rather differently by fainting in the kitchen, hitting the solid oak worktop on the way down and changing the shape of my upper jaw: now I can't bite anything cleanly as none of my teeth meet.

    The other way is will power but that is far from user-friendly as it demands too much of the individual. DD

    How about gloves? Maybe just worn in situations where you'd be most likely to bite them.
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
