In brief: Nail biting
Nail biting is usually a nervous habit that can be hard to stop.
Some methods that have worked include application of otc nail lacquers that contain foul tasting or hot substances that make biting distasteful. Also occasional oral meds such as a ssri or other anti-anxiety meds may work.
