hard habit to break

i wanna know what sort of habits you guys have..not necessarily the hazardous-to-your-health habits..but just anything that you can't help doing..something you might have tried to quit or change..whether or not you've been successful, etc..

i've tried to get myself out of the habit of hitting snooze in the morning. it's not like i hit it once or twice..but for at least an hour, every day. i had to start setting my alarm an hour and 15 minutes earlier than i wanted to be up. it doesn't matter what time i go to sleep, it doesn't matter how loud the alarm is..there's a very rare occassion when i'll get up after hitting it only a few times..and once in awhile i'll wake up before the alarm goes off at all..when that happens, i'm completely awake. it's sort of odd.

also used to bite my fingernails..for something like 18 years. and i stopped a few years ago..i still find myself with my fingers in my mouth at times..but i don't use the teeth. hah

I bite my fingernails all the time. And because of that, my fingers are gross

shesaid, I have the same problem to wake up; actually I even quite often rise up, go shut down different alarms, get back to sleep and do not keep any memory of it. More rarely, I even happen to get back to sleep after my shower.

When I was about 13, for several months, I kept doing all the time this move like the recognition sign used in the movie "The Sting" (with Paul newman and Robert Redford) (moving my finger OVER my nose). I guess I stopped because after a while my friends kept doing the same and laughing when speaking to me, or while I was standing in front of the classroom... it felt quickly annoying and so it helped me to stop.

I bite my nails...however I also keep a nail file around to smooth them out after.

I let my finger nails grow and then eat them. But I don't eat them I cut them with my teeth, play with them in my mouth and then put it in box for later. The box is the little box of a PS memory card and it's full of nails. Once I've cut the nail I file the the finget so it keeps neat.
Another habit I've is picking my nose. But I've managed to stop doing it in public. So almost noone know I do it.

I don't know if it qualifies as a habit, but I hunch a lot. I tended to try and keep my head down. Getting some confidence together in recent months has helped with it, though.

hm... same as shesaid =3 Or else it's imposible to get up for me

When I'm more awake, I'll probably be able to think of more, but at the moment, my brain seems to be a little inactive

One of the most annoying things is when I find myself standing in front of the refrigerator with the door open, realizing Ive been standing there for two minutes. Its like sleepwalking almost, I have to know what I want before I get there, or Im lost.

When shesaid jump, I said Yes ma'am

You're not the only one doing that...

I can stare out through a window about an hour, and suddenly wake up have no idea of where I am. That's so annoying...

I bite my fingernails...not really that big a problem, seems to be a popular one. Thats all I can think of right now.


The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

I crave some crunchy snacks in the evening. I used to eat like 1 bag of chips every eve.. but for the past weeks I've been trying to stop.. I don't eat it as often anymore.. but I still want it badly.. its very tough to control myself

I also bite my fingernails (and sometimes loose bits of skin) when I'm very bored.. can't stop then aswell..

I do have a healthy addiction aswell.. music.. I can hardly live without it.. and with it I become cheery. But it also makes me sing a lot.. not everyone seems to think thats a sane thing to do.. but owell.. I don't sing as bad as Barbra Streisand so thats ok

Sorry, I couldn't stop myself

I am happy to say I've never bitten my fingernails!
I grow my right thumbnail so its easier to play guitar, particularly classical guitar, and I make an apparently annoying clicking sound by flicking it with one of my other nails.. I also peel the layers of nail off my fingernail ends when they start splitting.
I also blow smoke rings on just about every drag of cigarettes, I make spit bubbles with my tongue, blow them off, then kick them as they float down and I play with my tongue piercing quite a lot. I also fiddle with my zippo lighter, flicking the lid open then closing it and repeating. if I have a pen with a lid, and the pen has writing down the side, the bit that clips the pen to my pocket has to line up with the writing exactly and it bugs me when there is a book hanging half over the edge of the desk. it needs to either be all the way on the desk, or at least be flush with it. I also hit the snooze button at least 3/4 times in the mornings

i am a nail biter :P, though they are in generally good condition, i do not swallow the nails as they can get caught in your appendix and make it inflame and will probally have to be removed (thats what my doctor told me, he is french )

I bite my nails. When they're all gone, I bite my cuticles. When those have been depleted, I gnaw on the skin at the tip of my fingers...really kind of gross.

I feel the need to have something in my mouth, all the time. The clinical term for that is an "oral fixation"

I can't seem to prevent myself from singing along with my car radio, even though I usually don't know (all of) the words and I definitely can't hit all of the notes.

Sometimes I zone out when driving, which is scary...but is that a habit or a deficiency?

And the worst bad habit is choosing boyfriends who live many hundreds of miles away from me.
