I realized just today I chew my cheeks, sometimes until they bleed (stress related). I also pick my thumbs until bleeding (I’ve known this for the past several years). The cheek chewing realization is newer and alarms me. Does anyone else experience this? Has anything helped you?

      i do both of those! for me, things that have helped with finger picking is fidget toys and crocheting to keep my hands occupied, as well as press-on nails since they are harder to pick with. for cheek biting, i normally try to keep my mouth busy by sucking on Lifesavers mints or chewing gum or even just running my tongue along my teeth
