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.
