Of course not! That's not a good habit. It's not true that you have no choice, it is just that you are choosing the wrong choice. No matter how busy we should always hear the call of nature otherwise we will suffer sooner or later.

Yes, salonga, thats very true, its not a good habit, its not good for your bladder or your kidneys to hold it a long time. Sometimes tho, I hold it like if I'm busy at the moment like right now I need to go, but I'm writing on Mylot..lol. Have a good day

Oh Walijo, It will be such a pity if your earnings at mylot might just all go to the expenses for your medication. Hope it will not. Change your habit my dear. Make sure when the nature calls you no matter how excited you are to answer posts here, stand and make your way to the bathroom. Have a nice day!

This is really a problem. Teachers are never to leave the room, but when you have to go ... Being well-behaved and concerned about the kids in my classes, I've spent four decades holding it. My doctors tell me that's why I've had bladder surgery three times, and now I'm battling bladder cancer! Sometimes we feel as if we have to hold it, but it's really bad for our health!

I always do that. It is bad because I do not realize it and then I get up to do something else... It hits me like a tidal wave and you better let me in the bathroom. Thanks for reading and good luck.

hi shiloh...i don't always want to bother to go and i'll hold for an hour or more. i've had jobs where i couldn't go when i needed to or wanted to. i had to hold for hours and then when we were done, i didn't want to take the time i just wanted to get out of the warehouse and go home. sometimes i barely made it. i am doing better now because i know it's not good to do that.

..sometimes, i hold it too especially when i'm rushing something and i don't like to be disturb.. however, its not good for my health.. so I still try my best that no matter how busy I am, when i needed to pee, i stand up from my chair and go to the comfort room.

yeah, but i don't hold it very long... i used to do this a lot when i was younger and i would get urinary tract infection a lot. so now i only hold when it's completely and utterly necessary.

Whenever I am in a public place, I try my best to hold it because I don't want to pee in a public restroom. But of course, that's impossible especially if I am out all day, so before going home, I make sure I would pee first.

I do. I even sometimes hold it when I'm not doing anything. I guess I'm just too lazy. I used to hold it when I am in class especially when there's only a half hour left. If it's more than that, I don't hesitate to get up and use the restroom. It's always a must for me to use the restroom before I go to my classes though, especially the longer ones. I hold it too when I'm driving and for some reason, taking a freeway exit and using a public restroom just doesn't come to mind. I hold it when I'm watching something and I'm getting to the good part. Don't want to miss a thing. Although I don't practice it that much, I think you should go when you need to go. I've had a lot of instances where I hold off going to the restroom and after some time, I don't feel the need to go anymore. And people tell me that that is not good. pees out!

I usually hold my pee when i am busy at work. I even hold it when i am actually at church or in a party with friends. I dont know i just feel uncomfortable using public toilet. So as much as i can i try not to pee in public restroom.

I do tend to hold my pee when I am busy and even when I am not busy and I am in a public place. I hate going to the restroom in the store.

Yes, I do hold my pee in when I'm busy. My job has me on the road a lot and I am uncomfortable using public restrooms at gas stations or stores. I will usually hold it until I reach my destination and then ask to use the ladies room. But if I have to go real bad I will try to find a hotel somewhere because their restrooms are cleaner. I always ask at the front desk and mention that I have been driving a long distance and really need a restroom. Usually they are very nice, although sometimes they say no. Its always a relief to finally use a toilet, whether to pee or poop.
