Are you a knuckle cracker?

I admit it, I am a knuckle cracker. Actually, I probably couldn't hide the fact that I am because I crack my knuckles so often, I don't even realize I am doing it most of the time. I think I started doing it when I was in 5th grade, because I saw my mom doing it and thought it was cool. Now, I'm not sure I could stop even if I REALLY, REALLY tried... I do feel ashamed at times about it, particularly when I am sitting next to someone who comments about it and then tells me how the sound drives them nuts. I truly am not doing it to annoy other people. When I am concious that I am cracking my knuckles, I am doing it to relieve the pressure that I can feel in my joints (I'm sure my fellow knuckle crackers understand what I am saying) I've always wondered if there were people who are "former obsessive knuckle crackers". Are you able to quit cracking your knuckles, when you have been doing it for over 20 years and probably don't realize you are doing it 90% of the time. I'd bet that I probably do it in my sleep--- no one's ever told me I did, it's just such a habit that I wouldn't be surprised if I did. So any former knuckle crackers out there?
