Are You A Slave to Your Habits?

    I don't mean things like smoking, or eating sticky cakes roll . I mean are there things you do automatically every day just purely out of routine.

    Is Hubpages one of your habits... is it an adddddiction....

    Are some habits good for you...

      Bathing and teeth brushing are habits that would be beneficial.

      Sometimes I think all my electronic crutches are habits...my computer, my iphone, my kindle.  If one goes down, I panic.  Then I look around and realize it's not just me.  I see groups of people "hanging out together" in person, socializing but 1/2 to 3/4 of the group are texting.  I sit in business meetings where people text.  It's maddening.  Then there are the social networks.  Sometimes I just have to turn it all off, be alone with my thoughts and remind myself I am human.

      Me too!! 
      I dip tobacco...  I started that when I "quit" smoking.  I guess I basically traded one for the other.  I have one or two dips a day. 
      I have a habit of going to reddit.com and looking at the NSFW pictures too, but I think that is just because I am stuck on a boat with all dudes.

      Well, for it to be lunchtime there... do you have a half-hour time zone too, like us? It is 10pm here.

      (and what DAY is it where you are......)

    Yeah, traditionally our lunch time is 12- 12.30. It is Tuesday here. Where are you, what day is it?

    Im in Aussie though, NZ is my home. Australia is 2 hours ahead of NZ.

      Greetings from Monday! I won't broadcast my location (in case of assassins sent from Mordor, I know you in New Zealand know all about that...), but check it out on my profile. But you didn't answer my question... do you have a half-hour time zone

      Do New Zealanders make fun of your Australian accent sad

    I don't have an australian accent!! NEVER!! i have a very strong kiwi accent, when i talk to an aussie, they always say, 'oh your from NZ arn't you?'

    I don't really understand what you mean by half hour time zone?

      Yes something like this happens to me when I am in England. I have lived in Canada for so long that people in England say 'oh your from NZ aren't you?' wink
      I'm not kidding, or Ireland, or South Africa, or France, or Wales, or Germany, or Zimbabwe... I guess my accent is flavoured enough not to be "obviously" English... although everyone in my home town here in Canada asks me where I am from too (though they are assuming England in their heads... I can feel it.)

      I am in a half-hour time zone. It is 8:30 in New York, and 1:30 in London, but 10pm here... we're half-an-hour "off"

    Excuse my arrogance, for not checking myself!- Your country of origin.

    You might be surprised to know that Kiwis and Aussies don't get along!!!

      I'm not surprised in the least. Canadians cannot stand being mistaken for Americans. I don't think Americans think about Canadians very much at all, however......

    I don't think I am a slave. My life's too disorganized for that!
