Biting my nails is a bad habit
I don’t want to
My mom really doesn’t want me to
but whatever
I do it anyway
Will I ever stop?
It’s not like it benefits me
or is a pleasurable activity
and the skin under my nails hurts
is raw and achey
from the incessant gnawing and
alternative clipping method
I think I’m just anxious or stressed
not sure about what though
does that mean,
great,
I’m inherently anxious or stressed
does that mean
when I stop biting I’m cured?
What if
I bite til I die.

Before you go to sleep you should say to yourself, aloud, “I could die tomorrow.”

It has a strange effect, saying it aloud. Makes this possibility seem more real, as real as it actually is. 

Then say to yourself, “I could die in 5 minutes.” 

Imagine you will in fact die in 5 minutes. What do you do? I mean really imagine, expect that, you will no longer be alive, you will be dead, in 5 minutes. Because this is the reality of it, your life doesn’t exist in 5 minutes, it only exists now.
