i guess everyone has some kind of bad habit..the more we're feeling incompetent, the more we engaged in the habits. for me, i tend to comb my hair with my fingers whenever i'm free...haha! to keep reminding ourselves not to do it is the first step towards ridding this habit. the more we practise this the more we're closer to our goal! keep trying and don't give up!

I have this same horrible habit and I can't stop. I've tried getting my nails done, I've tried putting stuff on them to keep me from doing it but I still do it. It bugs me like crazy to see others doing it but I do it to so I can'tsay anything. I'm also interestd in finding out how to break the habit.
