Chronic nail biting is typically associated with symptoms of an anxiety or obsessive-compulsive disorder given the person has difficulty stopping. Oftentimes, nail biters want to stop but are unable to succeed. While attempting to quit is encouraged, the workings behind compulsive nail biting also known as onychophagia is not easy to tackle alone.
