Yes it is possible but If two or more WHILE loops are nested, the inner BREAK exits to the next outermost loop. All the statements after the end of the inner loop run first, and then the next outermost loop restarts.

The problem here is that the nested while is inside if statement
WHILE @x <= 6
		BEGIN
        select @Intgr  = t from @Arr where i = @x
	


			if @Intgr > 0 
				BEGIN
				UPDATE @Arr SET t = 1 WHERE i = 0
				UPDATE @Arr SET t = (select t from @ArrValues where i = @x) WHERE i = 1
				UPDATE @Arr SET t = (select t2 from @ArrValues where i = @x) WHERE i = 2
				END
				ELSE
				BEGIN
					set @bFlag = 0


	
		
		            Declare @j as int
					SET @j = 0
					declare @u as int
					select @u = t2 from @Arr where i = 6 --UBOUND array is 6
					--FOR NEXt
					WHILE @j < @u
					DECLARE @COMP1 AS INT
					DECLARE @COMP2 as INT  
					SELECT @COMP1 = dbo.GetStringingSupport(@j) from @arr where i = 1

                    



					END --while nested


				END
