How to stop chewing ?

So, for as long as I can remember, I’ve had this habit of compulsively chewing on everything from pencils, to clothing, and even my fingers. Sometimes I don’t realize that I’m doing it, it just happens. It’s gotten to a point where I sometimes chew my fingers to the point where I draw blood. I don’t do this as a form of intentional self harming, like I said, I just do it without even knowing
I’m a high school student and I’m still doing this, and I want to stop.
How do I accomplish that?
(I’m super stressed and anxious, and my fam thinks I have ADHD if that helps)

For your nails paint them with clear nail polish so it will taste bad whenever you try to bite them.

crap, the most I can tell you is that the infections suck ass.
As other people have said, gloves do help with nail biting. As for everything else, maybe gum or something like that?

Maybe my continuous pain from my infections will scare you off (:< but i doubt it. It really hurts though.

I can relate with biting my nails. I constantly do it and I can never grow them. I've been doing it for a long time, and I've never been able to stop. I also chew the inside of my mouth sometimes and it draws a bit of blood. Like, the inner side of my cheek, inside my mouth. I don't do that as often though. I'm only 13 years old, so I honestly don't know how to help you. And I've also been chewing Styrofoam cups and plastic straws since I was younger. All I can think to say is See More▼

Yeah. And being in high school, it's worse. Being looked at as weird and childish biting your nails in the back of the class.
