Do you have a bad habit?

According to a quick search on the Internet, these are some of the most common bad habits:

  1. Nail-biting
  2. Smoking
  3. Drinking too much alcohol
  4. Eating too much junk food
  5. Phone/computer addiction
  6. Overeating
  7. Not drinking enough water
  8. Staying up too late

There’s a good chance most of you participate in at least one of those bad habits, if not two or three or four of them.

Do you have a bad habit – maybe something that’s not on the list? Have you tried to quit it? Have you succeeded or failed? Tried more than once? Tell us about it, if you’re comfortable, in the comments below after you’ve voted.

I’m OCD luckily my wife is too.
We have lists for everything.
I fact check everything that I read.
When we go to museums we read all the displays.
Many people don’t understand us.

None of the ones listed are my habits. Quit smoking. A six pack lasts me a month or more. Diabetes mandates I eat correctly and drink LOTS of water, Internet??, well during isolation I am on it longer than usual but not to the point of addiction.

Eating too much and too often.

Habit: is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously. Based on this I might have one because I do tend to overeat when there’s good food in front of me. Is it done subconsciously though? Usually not!

“Not drinking enough water”
If that counts as a bad habit, I have many other “sin of omission” bad habits!

I have habits, who’s to say they are good or bad.

My wife might say I have several bad habits, but we disagree on the definition.

Quit drinking in 1983, quit smoking in 1994. I’m sure I have bad habits left but those were my biggies. And no, neither was a once and done…there were a lot of false starts before those dates.

Lol……Those who say they have NO bad habits probably have significant others say their worst habit is not recognizing all of the bad habits they have, ha, haaaa,,,,,,!!

I chose one as my one and only bad habit is FOOD. I love to eat really good food especially Thai food.

The”no, I quit my bad habit(s)” & “no” have a bad habit, lying. lol

Smoking was my bad habit. I stopped, cold turkey, in ’05, 1 week before bypass surgery and a year before our first RV trip. Hopefully I quit in time to remain mostly healthy for a few more years.
