I have clinically diagnosed anxiety disorder, so there are quite a few habits. The one that's probably weirdest is that I pull out my eyelashes, top and bottom. Ever since I was six. Most people don't notice because I'm blonde, and so they think I would have light eyelashes, but if you're actually close enough to really see my eyes you'll notice I have no lashes. As a kid I used to be obsessed with examining them once I'd pulled them out, but now they don't interest me as much because I barely let them grow before I pull. I've tried quitting several times, I just can't seem to do it. I can't convince myself that its a big enough deal to go through all the anxiety, so it's never worked out.
Usually when I'm at school I always have to be drawing on something. Not just like doodling, I mean it's really hard to stop. And if there's no paper to draw on I'll use anything. I was having a minor panic attack in class the other day (I've mastered keeping my attacks totally hidden, people can never tell), and there was no paper in front of me so I wound up drawing all over my jeans. But before that I'd considered my skin, the table, everything that I could potentially get my hands on. I know a lot of people draw on themselves or they're clothes, but this is compulsive; I feel like something bad will happen if I don't draw. However, honestly I don't mind this habit much. I'm planning on majoring in art so in a way you could consider it practice.
Besides that I pace, keep my room really neat (if something seems out of place, I can't do anything until its fixed),watching the clock, playing with my hands when I'm not drawing, jiggling my leg, clenching my jaw, and reading everything I see.
I'm pretty sure that's all of the big ones.

I pull on my eyelashes. Not like constantly or anything though. They're so thick and long that they get caught up in each other often, and just bugs me.

I bite my nails. Its awful and gross. But I still do it.
I should amputate my arms.

The moral of this story is: never talk to muffin trees.

I listen to my iPOD when I go to sleep which is terrible because I never hear when my alarm clock goes off in the morning. : x

I can't either. I don't like drinking water period. Unless it is a hot day or something, and the water is cold, will I sip at it. I know it's not good but drinking water really does make me feel sick right after.

Sharon: What is it honey? (gasp!) My baby's killed again!
Haa, I love that line.

I'm obsessed with Harry Potter (books and movies), Green Day, Lady Gaga, and coloring my/other people's hair. A weird habit/obsession is organizing things by color. Ever since I was a kid, I always organized crayon boxes by color. Now its worse. I work at Kmart and I constantly organize the nail polish, shirts, makeup, anything I can by color. It's really weird. I used to have really bad OCD and other issues, but a good 3 months in rehab fixed that for me. Haha apparently I'm obsessed with South Park enough to the point that it bothers my boyfriend, who also loves it but gets tired of watching it everyday like me :wink:

I dunno if this is really a habit or obsession, maybe more of a preference, but I don't like to wear the same color of shirt two days in a row. Or rather a similar hue I suppose. I'll do blue or grey one day, then red the next. Then when I run out of red (since I have more blues & greys than anything else) I might reluctantly start wearing the white print tees. (I seem to look fatter in a white shirt. :? )

My strange obsession is that I always want to have something in my hands. And a strange fascination with pens....

Well, I have OCD, Aspergers. Plenty of habits and obsessions go along with it.

OK obsessions:

Well we can start with South Park. I'm somewhat obsessed with Stan, and Stan's relationship with Kyle.

I've been a radio geek all my life. Everything I do revolves around radio. You know, AM/FM radio. I watch South Park, I find some way to tie it to radio. I take a walk, I do radio in my head.

(OCD-related obsessions)

I have to do the sign of the cross and count to 8 everytime I walk in and out of my house.

I have to have something between my knees when I sleep. Usually that's a blanket or a pillow.

I have to pray at Midnight.

I have to read a bible verse at 2AM.

Certain things have to be in certain orders.

There's others but I won't go into them.

I'm on Zoloft for the OCD. If I was not on the Zoloft, I probably wouldn't be posting this right now. It's a very disabling disorder when not treated. It can ruin and take your life hostage.
Stan and Kyle :)

I think my biggest habit/obsession is cracking my neck. It's very loud and obnoxious, but hey, my neck gets stiff.

As do I. Knuckles that is, not neck. During the lunch break at work.

Also, I always keep money bills in the left back pocket of my pants, and coins in the little rigth one. Money has to be stacked by value from the biggest to the smallest, facing up, bills folded once so the smallest bill is exposed, and put in my pocket so that the face of the character on the bill is facing away from my ass.

When I'm feeling bad, I must not step on lines. If I'm feeling good I just don't care.

Pictures on walls must be perfetly leveled.

There are others.

It's not as bad as it seems when you read this. I learned to control this obsessions, cause, as kfgg said, they can take your life hostage.

Bite nails, Breaking my knuckles....


I pick/trim my hair, especially my nose hair :oops: I know it's gross but I cannot breathe if there is a lot of hair around there. I have an ugly obsession with hair....I have it all over my body (back too!) but can't get rid of it. I've learned to tame it...sorta.

I also used to bite my "pointer" finger when younger...somehow it reduced my stress :roll:

On a lighter note....I have to check my alarm clock constantly before school because I dread being late due to oversleeping...multiple alarms set as well, cause I never get up on the first! :|
RTL: I love being a dick to people for no reason. It makes me feel better about how my mom smacks me around with a frozen T Bone steak.

Trying to get the last word in, giving an honest answer when someone asks me something even if i think it'll piss them off, crossing the road if people walk down the street on the same side as me toward me, can't sleep until I finish what I wanted to do for the day.

"Bite nails"
I'm biting my nails as I read that...got no nail scissors with me to cut them with!
