Well the answer to such a question has not been authentically stated in any of the medical journals. It is because nail biting in itself is not a disease. People bite nails because they want to and because they can't let go of the nail biting habit.Though people who bite nails make an effort to stop doing so, it is more of an act of their subconscious mind and therefore not completely under their control.
