What is your worse habit that you would like to stop, other then smoking. Mine is eating sweets. I am addicted to sugar, and have been ever since I was a kid. I remember my mom trying to control it, but my dad could never say no. To this day, I would say I am an addict. I will by loads of bubble gum and chew it until all the sugar is gone. I also love candy, and can eat it all day, and all night. So now that I have confessed my worse habit, what is yours? Hope someone shares the same one I have.

I kept banging my head here trying to think of a bad habit like yours. But I can't, for the life of me, come up with one. I have a lot of bad habits with my attitude though. Its too trusting, too generous and too sensitive. Many times, it is for this three reasons that I always ended up hurting. If only I can have a craving for sweets like you. It will be so much better and easier for me to handle.

Yep, I can identify with yours too. Although, I don't think it is a bad habit. Yeah, you can't get burned and be more careful, but we don't have to lose that quality. So don't lose that quality.

Well I smoke, so I guess that is the obvious one........ but as you don't want to include that, I guess I would say my addiction is to savoury foods such as crisps (I think you call them chips in the States), and any savoury snacks like cheese and biscuits, and fresh French bread with cheese and loads of butter! I'm not that much of a sweet eater, and often turn down dessert if I'm out to dinner, but I just can't resist the cheese and biscuits, - and if I'm at home alone, I can easily get through a giant, family-sized bag of crisps in one go! My favourites are Pringles, McCoys, and Twiglets, which may not mean much to the non-Brits here - but they are just - irrestable!!!

That sounds good too. When I was younger, every Friday, my mom and I would share a whole loaf of french bread, and have it with cheese and tomato slices. It was yummy.

Coca Cola. Can't seem to get enough of it. If I don't watch myself I can drink several cans a day. I have done this since I was a kid. Sometimes lunch would consist of a candy bar and a Coke. Not very good for you but still my favorite lunch!

LOL, see that is what you call a bad habit, but a tasty one at that.

I have the bad habit of eating chocolate all the time. I can not buy chocolate and put it up. I will eat until it is all gone. I especially get the chocolate craze if I am worried about something. Then anything chocolate is not safe in my house. So I just don't keep it in the house at all. Other sweets don't bother me to have them around but chocolate I am addicted to.
