YOu can stop mit, though you haven't done so yet. It is a bad habit, and it is a form of self-mutilation. I am worried mainly by how negatively you view this : " I can't break this awful habit" --- yes you can ! See a CBT therapist to both break the old bad stress-related habit, and to learn better ways of dealing with the stress when it arises.
