Do you have a habit that you just can't break?

A habit of mine since I was a child has been biting my nails. It's something that I can stop for a while, but somehow retreat back to now and then. It's one of those habits from childhood that I still can't seem to break. How are you?

  • Try making your nails look pretty and then maybe you won't want to bite them. Paint them or get a manicure.

  • I still bite my nails. The only thing that made me stop was when I had acrylic nails. :(

  • I also bite my nails. And I go through periods of having beautiful nails, then I snag one and bite them all off! Right now they are short. lol. Other than that, I don't think I have any other bad "habits" except smoking. That's the worst one of all!!!

  • I'm a closet smoker. My DH and my best friend are the only ones who know I smoke. I smoke outside and will not smoke in public. I don't like for anyone to see me. Been trying to quit.

  • I've smoked since I was 14. By the time I understood it was bad for me...I was already addicted. I quit during 3 pregnancies. I quit for 3 yrs once, and 8 years another time. I keep going back. This is anonymous 'cuz I ca't stand the b*tch bites up and down my back.

  • Smoking would be my worst habit. I have attempted several times to quit but I am a goner. Even though I know how terrible it is for me and all the health risks, I still can't get past the withdrawal.
