Most people bite their nails because they don't know what else to do with their hands. Try smoking! It's more expensive than gnawing on self-grown cuticle beds, but you look much cooler and more self-assured than when you have your hands in your mouth.

They'll be huddling on the corner with you, but they're all very mellow from the nicotine.
