I chew the skin off my bottom lip

I know I have SA but I was wondering if chewing the skin off my bottom lip and I was wondering if I may be doing it out of nervousness.

Yeah, I'm sure that's why you're doing it. Unless you've got a bump or something on your lip that's making you bite it, you're probably doing it out of anxiety.

I chew my lips, grind my teeth, bite my fingernails. I have just about every nervous habit in the book.

I don't chew my lips, but they get so dry that sometimes I have to peel them off.
Gross, I know

I usually bite my lips in my sleep, grind my teeth, and I bite my fingernails until they're raw. I thought I was the only one who did those things.

I do everything that everyone has mentioned so far. Except I'm not sure what cuticles are.

Eep! I pick at my cuticles too! (a cuticle is the skin that grows over your fingernail) I thought I was the only one...

I bite my lips all the time when I'm nervous. My teachers always think I'm chewing gum.

Everyone has nervous habits, I think. Those who don't are probably just lying. SA or no.

If I cannot forgive myself for all the blunders
That I have made over the years,
Then how can I proceed?
How can I ever dream perfection-dreams?
Move, I must, forward.
Fly, I must, upward.
Dive, I must, inward,
To be once more
What I truly am
And shall forever remain.

I do all of these too, plus smoke and sometimes it's really hard to do them all at the same time. Chew, chew, smoke, chew some more, smoke some more.

I chew the insides of my cheeks and two people have told me that I lick my upper lip a lot.

Re: I chew the skin off my bottom lip

I bite my lips all the time...i never wear lipstick or gloss because of this and i could really use the color. The inside of the cheeks too--i thought i was the only one who did that! And don't even get my started on the nails and cuticles!

I also have kind of a bad skin picking thing. If I get a scab i am guaranteed a scar because i can't seem to leave it alone. Does anyone know if this is a symptom of SA or just a really disgusting habit? (it would really make a lot of sense because i seem to do it at very inappropriate times too i.e. public places) It's okay to be honest--i won't flag you if it truly is just a nasty habit --it's just something i have always wondered.
If you're not too embarrassed any info would be helpful...

So if you ever feel neglected.
If you think that all is lost...
I'll be counting up my demons, yeah
hoping everything's not lost.

Re: I chew the skin off my bottom lip

Wow, I thought I was the only one. I chew on the inside of my lips and I've been biting my nails since 3rd grade.
