    I have a Weird habit of rocking side to side

    while laying down listening to music. While doing this I be in deep thought. I can't go a day without doing it. It is such a embarrassing habit. I've been doing it for 20 years and I don't think I could ever stop.

    Sucking My Thumb And Other's Thumbs

    I suck my thumb all the time. I push on my upper teeth when I do it and, resultantly, I have very bucked teeth but I don't mind since my thumb fits perfectly. I hardly have to open my mouth to suck it. I love sucking other people's thumbs too and like when I put my thumb into...

    - I tend to pull out my hair sometimes.

    - I bite the inside of my cheek to the point where I taste iron. - I dig my nails or scratch my wrist where I used to cut when I'm tempted to cut and I don't have a blade.

    Fidgety Hands

    When I am nervous I tend to fidget... like I touch everything. Lately though it has gotten out of hand and i do it all the time. When I have nail polish on it usually does not last very long because I tend to bite it off.

    My Habit: I Peel Stuff...

    That's it... I peel stuff. Anything, paint, stickers, plastic coatings, tape... really anything that will peel. It's the oddest thing, but I love it and it is very comforting... I will even paint my fingernails just so I can peel it all off.
