Personally, I don’t think you’re going to find your answers on reddit. These seem like really deep-seated issues that would be best treated by a professional. Like a cognitive-behavioral or behavior modification therapist.

If I had a “hack,” it would be learning about Zen Buddhism. I went through a period of extreme anger and frustration. I was bitter at the world, and always had to be right/get the last word in. Everything was a battle. In hindsight it stemmed from feeling hurt.

The book I read—Hardcore Zen by Brad Warner—changed my life. It’s been 10 years since I read it and honestly don’t remember much of it, but I do recall how much lighter and freer I felt after reading it. It offered new perspectives and helped me recognize the things that actually matter in life. It helped me learn how to pick and choose my battles and, most importantly, how to let go.

(For the record, I realize this makes me sound like a born-again but it’s not like that at all—I’m am atheist. Buddhism is more like philosophy and life lessons than religion.)

There was a nail paint that was used when I couldn't stop as a kid.

Perhaps something like this:

You must understand that you may end up replacing the nail biting with something else, perhaps doughnuts. Try to understand what this action is all about.

I like /u/mac4est 's answer.

If you take things personally offer you should read The Four Agreements. This book really helped me understand that people's actions have almost nothing to do with you and more to do with themselves. It's a great read.

I crossposted from here, and that poster claims it's from Moody Bitches by Julie Holland.

Two hacks I use:

If I don't feel like showering but want to freshen up, I use these body cleansing wipes.

And for the times I don't feel like brushing my teeth, I keep some of those tiny disposable toothbrushes in my nightstand. You can get them at Dollar Tree. You don't need water for them, and it's much easier than getting off my ass and going into the bathroom, and then when you're done, you just toss it.
