    So, every now and then (and by that I mean every 2 minutes) I get slapped by my roommates/friends telling me to stop plucking my hair!!

    I know I've done it for several years, but lately it's been getting out of hand, the thing is I do it when I get anxious, but most of the time I don't even realize I'm doing it.

    I asked the all mighty Google, and supposedly research shows it's linked to a mutation in some gene. The name of the, err... disorder, is Trichotillomania and it affects about 5% of the population

    Now, looking at the pictures, I doubt I have it because it's not THAT bad, but I'm still a bit scared because I know I've been doing it a lot more lately =/

    My question is, what is YOUR horrible habit?

    I also do some compulsive buying, snooze my alarm a little too much in the morning, drunk dial (lol who doesnt?!) etc...

    Here's a picture of a case of Trichotillomania... fucking scary!

    WOW, a genetic disorder, not just a bad habit? I tend to scratch my head a lot, though not itchy or anything. So if genetic, I guess something like wearing a hat won't break you of it? You'll do this all your life? Weird, and sorry to hear. icon_sad.gif

    Head scratching isn't my worst habit, though. I suppose standing poorly, not straight, cause it's bad for my back.

    squeezing my pimples - hard - again and again - I have the scars to prove it.icon_redface.gif

    Comes from being over-stressed at work and in general, I think.

    Shaking my knee constantly and twitching violently. Can't really control that though. I guess it would be procrastination.

    I chew the hell out of random stuff. I'm always getting "KEVIN!!! STOP FUCKING CHEWING ON STUFF" I've always been like that since i was little. I also tend to suck on things to. Hmm might come in handy one day. Who knows.

    What's a wolf biter?

    My worst habbit: I compulsively pick up and straighten the house. I am that guy who hangs keys on the chain, coats in the closet and fluffs pillows.

    I dont know what you call this but i tend to like rubbing certain fabrics between my middle and index fingers. They have to be a certain kind of feel to thin. Only certain kinds of cotton. I have done it since i was a boy and though it annoys my family they are used to it.

    I have a bad habit of drinking diet Pepsi or diet Coke almost every day. I need to try harder to kick this unhealthy habit.

    Same problem here. I like the taste and bubbles. Either we will last longer because of the chemicals or expire sooner (but look good) LOL one of those...

    Guess I'd better take another shot at this and admit I'm super organized.....cleaning, straightening, making sure everything is sort of "camera ready" even before I go to bed. Friends joke that I'm Joan Crawford's grandson.

    On second thought, being organized is actually a good thing. (Oh no, now I sound like Martha Stewart!)

    I often assume that people want to be corrected when they err. I realize that this isn't a good thing, and I often am not fast enough to bite my tongue.

    Oh don't worry, you're fine - just as you are! You can bite my tongue instead!

    My big mouth............often my sense of humor is sarcastic and ironic, and often people think I am serious and get offended.

    interrupting someone when they are talking...a habit that I've kicked for the most part although I still catch myself doing it occasionally...
