to confess my bad habits.....

Kirsty from My Home Truths has prompted us this week to confess our bad habits so here goes....

1. I'm a picker.... yep a big fat gross disgusting picker....if there is a scab, scar, pimple, ingrown hair, dry skin, whatever it is I will pick it.... People telling me to leave it alone or that it will scar is no deterrent, I actually think that just eggs me on. I don't know what it is but I just can't leave it alone. I know it's gross, I know all the reasons I shouldn't do it....but there are just some things that need to be picked! Lol...

2. I'm a cracker.... I love to crack my knuckles.....Again something I know that I shouldn't do and no matter how many people tell me "you'll end up with arthritis in your fingers" it doesn't deter me...I am sure if they are right when I am 70 I am sure I will wish I had of listened to them but right now there is something therapeutic about cracking my knuckles (meanwhile I HATE when my chiropractor cracks my neck! yuck!)

Given that I am single and live by myself I have no idea what my other bad habits are as I don't consider anything else that I do as bad or a habit....I did consider asking my friends and family what they thought my bad habits were but thought that could be opening a big can of worms! Lol...

So dare I ask them now.....? What are my bad habits...?


  1. I'm a picker too. Like you I know all of the reasons that I shouldn't do it but that doesn't make one iota of difference.

  2. LOL! It's funny when you start thinking of your bad habits - its hard to think of them!!! There's always about two major ones but then what else???

  3. My son is a chronic knuckle cracker, and our pediatrician has told us that the whole thing about being more likely to get arthritis is totally untrue - it doesn't make me feel any better when I hear him cracking his knuckles,though!

  4. Those are totally mine as well !!!
    Actually you won't get arthritis from cracking your knuckles - that noise is just a release of gas from your joints. I love that crack - back, neck, fingers, knees - I'm not fussy !!
    Have the best day !

  5. lol we both had the same thought - NOT to ask our family and friends for a list of our bad habits!
    You would probably drive me nuts with your knuckle cracking :p

  6. My hubby cracks his knuckles it drives me in sane! Considering I let hubby loose with my bad habits this week, I should look at tackling his but I guess I do that too much already on the blog. lol

  7. My nail biting is probably as bad as you picking and cracking Zita! Glad to know that we are not alone in our bad habits!

  8. Oh I am not a picker or a cracker. I used to be when I was younger but have seemed to outgrown them.
