Hair twirling addiction?

Since I was little, I have always done self soothing actions like twirling my hair or rubbing a teddy bears ear, for example. This is considered normal when younger, but how normal is it now? I’m a 21 y/o woman who almost CONSTANTLY twirls her hair. I have to resist the urge to do it all the time. I was told it can be habit when I’m stressed or anxious, and yes I am a very anxious person, but I also do it when I am calm and not stressed too. I have tried to stop before. It’s an unnecessary habit And one id like to quit. Yet I’m seriously addicted and can’t stop doing it. Is it OCD? Anxiety? Just a habit? How can I make myself stop
