do you think you wouldn't have picked up a bad habit if it wasn't for your ex?

I know I do. I was with my ex on and off for seven years and when I first met him I was 18. I had smoked a cigarette before but it was just a puff here and a puff there. the more I hung around him, I began to smoke on his cigarette, then I would ask for my own, then I was hooked. I can say in the beginning he warned me and tried to stop me, and even felt bad about it later, but it was too late. I guess I really can't blame him because I have my own mind and he didn't force me to smoke, but I still feel like had i not met him, I wouldn't be addicted to cigarettes today. Have you ever picked up a bad habit from an ex and regret it?

The worse thing I picked up from my ex was a bad temper. Before meeting my Hubby I was a thrower. I'd lose my temper and all h*ll would break loose. I broke alot of nice things in a fit of rage. Alot of it had to do with the sense of helplessness that I had at the time. I met a friend after we split up who was a therapist and he helped me work through the issues I had and I can honestly say I don't throw things anymore. Hubby and I rarely even fight or argue. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~
