Why is my lip biting habit so bad? I need some advice.

See a psychiatrist. Some people have compulsive or impulsive behaviors that result in self-injury. Sometimes there is an irresistible urge or tension that is relieved temporarily when one engages in these acts. You may have an underlying, untreated anxiety disorder. Naltrexone can help to lessen the rewarding effects of self-injury. See a psychiatrist. See a dentist for an exam & tx of the lesions in your mouth.
