    The word habit is a trip
    It basically means your trapped in a room with little possibility of getting out
    Yeah they say everybody can change, but having a habit is kinda like having a spouse!
    In more ways than one somehow you feel you cant live without it
    Doing irrational things and not thinking twice aobut it
    Married to the habit or some like to say addicted
    If anyone opposes.....there condemned..instantly facing conviction
    Nobody approves of the habit or has any concern
    Only to judge upon you, so there habit you may never learn
    Habits are mental and physical too
    Yeah, some like to have sex, others lie, how bout you!
    Money, along with drugs, the list could go on for days
    If your someone who judges...Then we've found were you fit in this maze
    My habit is this.....Although I try and stop its still only a wish
    Cause when my mind gets to roaming I pick up a pen
    And through the trying to quit my habit has resurface once again
    Dont pass judgement on people habits, addictions or whatever they run through!
    Just observe your personal habit and make the best of the joy it brings you!

    THEONE,
    i enjoyed this very interesting discourse on habit......
    and dag nabit
    got so many in my life
    both good and bad ones, yes even a wife
    i've been with for 31 years
    and plus habits i also have fears
    that someday i'll lose these things i'm so accustomed to
    and then what am i supposed to do?

    you reached me where i'm vulnerable
    you reached me where i think
    where my mind ofter runs....
    but no real answer comes.....

    Peace and Blessings

    This one caused me to ponder, an addiction to something harmful is a hard habit to break. Makes you thankful for the good habits, doesn't it. Tight write.

    I think I have the worst habit of all!..."I love hard" be it Husband, children, friends, dogs and whoever or whatever...IF, I take a liking or a loving to them...it's UNCONDITIONAL. And as much as that's good...that's bad.
