    I venture to say that this is something universal (and I believe that I'm not exaggerating in thinking this way), because I really think everyone has some kind of bad habit in their lives (some of them are harmful and some of them not so much... but they are still bad habits anyway).

    Particularly, I have some very boring habits (which are not categorically dangerous), for example: let the wet towel on the bed (or anywhere else :D) and eating unhealthy snacks - I'm totally crazy about Doritos - very often. :eek:

    What would be yours?

    We all have bad habits, that's for sure. It's only natural since we're human beings and far from perfect.

    There are many bad habits that I have, my partner could probably list them all, haha but my worst one is swearing.

    Considering I am a female many men find it very unattractive when a girl swears. I don't do it in every single sentence or anything like that, but still. Whenever I get frustrated or stressed I start to swear :p I've been trying to cut it down but I feel like I'm calmer after. It's a really bad habit.

    I feel like that is a common bad habit for many, many people! I've tried to cut that out but I'm just too used to it right now, but it's not that a problem... After all they are just some snacks, they won't hurt anybody! :p

    But I also have some other serious bad habit, expecially in the financial area: I often buy things not that necessary at the moment, just because I feel the need to buy it or there is some kind of offer.. And that's a pretty worse habit that my snack-eating.

    My bad habits? Where should I start lol. I have a lot. The biggest one is smoking. I need to put it down before it's too late.
    The not too serious ones are like: eating at 11pm when I can't sleep, leaving all my notes and books on the ground or if I'm before a hard exam I even sleep with them and then leave them there....someone could say I'm messy. :D

    I think your bad habit has millions of fans around the world (and I was once one of them, but not anymore :D), you're certainly not alone on this journey. I remember that for me it was a "battle" to stop snacking after dinner. It certainly wasn't such an easy thing to do, but after much nutritional education I got it.

    I have some bad habits that I don't even want to mention. But I will say that I am trying to get rid of them for good by replacing them with good ones. Everytime I catch myself wanting to do one of the bad habits, I immediately try to replace it with a different activity, training excercises, reading or just meditating. We all have bad habits but the question is whether we can eliminate them or not.

    I wouldn't say anything serious. I do enjoy a good cocktail, the Martini and Gin & Tonic chief among them, but that is in moderation, of course.

    And I like collecting firearms, but most have a real purpose. The few that don't, well, that is kept in moderation too.

    As long as a habit, hobby, or whatever, doesn't negatively impact one's life, well, enjoy. We only get one life on this blue marble, after all.

    Erm...

    1. Drinking
    2. Smoking
    3. Women
    4. Gambling

    These are apparently the four vices in my culture that people say - men will have at least one of them. If not, he is probably not considered a man?

    Rather archaic. :p

    Personally, my bad habit would be my temper... and some anxiety with a lot of complaining, lately. :(

    My bad is trusting people too easily. I am currently working on this has I have realized that trust should be earned through the matters of the brain and not solely by the heart and mind.

    I have a few, among them is that I am lazy at times, I am also very trustworthy and I can become very pessimistic which can discourages the people around me.

    Wow, that leaving the wet towel in the bed hits TOO close to home! I always do this too! Maybe I'm just really lazy because sometimes I just really don't want to do it.

    My sister always tells me to hang it dry somewhere and hanging it behind our house is always a chore.

    One bad habbit that gets the better of me is perfectionism. I generally don't find it as a bad aspect of my personality,but at times, I feel like it hampers my productivity as an individual and it blocks me of from realising the smaller details.

    Unfortunately I do have a bad habit, and that's smoking. It is the one area in my life that I cannot get a grip on. They are taking a toll on my health, especially since I went to rolling my own. They're so much harsher that way. I can say that I'm a prisoner to them. I am going to call my Dr. and see if he will prescribe me some Chantex, I've heard from a lot of people that they really work.

    Me too Tina. I used to drink and gamble too and I have cut down considerably on both but smoking is one thing i cannot get rid of. We all know it's bad for health and i certainly wouldn't advise anyone taking up the habit but once you're in in it's hard to quit. I try and compensate by eating healthy and practicing exercises. I know one thing does not cancel the other but it's better than nothing.

    Ouch! :( I think this is a real bad habit that you have to get rid of as soon as possible. Just for curiosity: Do you work to improve this? This is something very discouraging. :oops:

    Oh, I'm so sorry for you. But don't consider yourself as a prisoner (becuase you're not! ;)). You are aware of your addiction and are looking for help. This is already a great start. :)

    That's good to know this. :)I think the most important thing you already do, which is try to change that. The fact that you are already aware of the problem gives you a great advantage to be able to beat it someday.

    Good luck! ;)

    I won't consider it a bad habit but a character that perhaps is offending to other people, it's speaking what's on my mind. I know a lot of people would want to pause a little before they would say something to not offend someone but if I say something that is against my thoughts, I would feel that I'm not staying true to my convictions.

    I don`t smoke or drink, but my bad habit is wasting too much time on the internet. Very often I catch myself hanging in youtube or some social network. I understand that this doesn`t bring any value to my life, still, it happens over and over again. The best thing is to keep a schedule, not getting distracted by trifle things. Though, it doesn't-help always. I guess I am not self-disciplined.
