  • Maybe she has low self esteem or they are bad habits that she obviously hasn't broken.

  • It means that she needs therapy. Biting nails is pretty common into adulthood - the other behaviors could be an indication of some problems.

  • Sounds like it could be pica. This makes it more than a bad habit.
