Do you have any bad habits that you just cannot overcome? Is there anyhting that you have to watch yourself and be sure you do accidentally do it in public over? Have you ever embarrased yourself by forgetting anf practiceing this bad habit while someone is looking at you? The thing that I have to watch myself about most it picking my nose. I know, it sounds really gross, but I just can't stand the feeling of boogers in my nose. If I can get a tissue I am fine, but if I can't I really have to practise self control to stop myself from instictively useing my finger when the feeling really starts to bother me. So tell me, what wierd things do you do?

Do you smoke pot? If you do that may be affecting your short term memory but it's nothing to worry about, it's only 7% and it will come back if you ever quit. If you don't have a reason like that then maybe you have ADHD?

I get angry easily , I dont knowif its a habit or an attitude. I hate it and I just hope I will be able to make it slower this year. Since im a customer service office I should learn to hold it back for my own welfare. I also have this habit when it comes to my clutter in my room. I have the tendency to clutter so much then clean it when I fell like it. Its surely not a good habit and I hope I will be able to deal with my clutter in a daily basis.

The one thing I just can't seem to get over is biting my nails. I've done it since I was a child, and tried to quit for just as long. Now I try to concentrate it to one hand, or use nail polish so I don't want to ruin my nails. It works for a little while, but then something happens that makes me anxious or restless aaaaand we're back on square one. : /

You should try that special bad tasteing nail polish. It's supposed to deter you from nibbleing.

that was my thing, bitting my nails. Fortunitly i overcame this addiction.....i was attacked and had two teeth knocked out, those two teeth are now crowned, and i can't bite my nails anymore...every cloud has a silver lining?!

No, I have to agree with you with the nose picking thing. Sure, I don't sit there picking my nose for fun but I get allergies.. I'm allergic to every thing like pollen, dust and especiallyc ats! If I'm out an about and my nose gets itchy I often have to scrath it-which tends to look like I'm picking my nose. I know I"m not doing anything wrong but I'm sure other people don't see it that way! My other bad habit is slouching. I'm a bad sloucher but whenever I catch myself slouching I immediately straighten my posture. I also go off into my own world, in deep thought and it looks like I'm in a bad mood when I do. I can't count how many times I've been off with the fairies and someone's come up to me and said 'Are you ok?'! It's so annoying!

It sounds like we are alot alike, hahaha. I have a bad habit of slouching at the computer but there isn't much I can do about it because my lower back is a little over curved, so I slouch when I'm sitting to compensate for it.

You should really try the new stop smking pill that is out, my husband is useing it and it is really working for him, and he has tried to quit with the patch and stuff before and hasn't been able to before now. The pill is called Champix, look it up, it will probably help you too.

I think biting my nails is one of my worst bad habits. I've never managed to get rid of that habit and i've had it since i was a kid. I think its just one of those habbits i can't seem to get rid of. I have an obsessive compulsive dissorder aswell, but that isn't a habbit, its something i have to live with just like alot of other people. Its quite a common dissorder. ~Joeys wife

Your question just attracted me! Its a really tough question, since it requires self evolution, which isn't everybody's cup of tea. As for me, I think my worst habbit is that I believe people very easily and in the process, have got hurt many times. This isn't the only thing.. it follows by my excusing nature. I easily excuse anyboy for doing anything wrong. I think I need to overcome these habbits! Your comments??

Yeah I do think you should try to get over that. You will get taken advantage of alot if you don't.

Your habit tickled me a bit Nykkee. As for myself, I think my worst habits might be slight propensity to jealousy (okay, maybe a little worse than 'slight') and direct opinionative expression (well... okay, VERY direct and very frequent). Maybe those don't count as the habits you are looking for but I think they count. A physical habit might be some itching of the jaw at times an the nose on occasion.
