Very nice practical list of bad habits. A good way to cope with the habits is to admit and track them online and chat with others who do the same.

Also whoever wrote this should follow #3 and #4. Every other thing says about staying away from germs and being protective of yourself. It's this kinda shit that makes everyone so sick nowadays. Mothers not touching their kids unless they're in a sterile environment with freshly washed hands... this leads to a baby not developing its own immune system and suffering later. The human body is quite resilient and the chances of you catching something from biting your nails is quite ridiculously low. I chew my nails, don't wash my hands hardly EVER unless I use the bathroom. Stop worrying so much about germs. Humans have lived millions of years without antibacterial soap every hour, I'm pretty sure they still can. lol if someone were to follow every one of these they would be the most boring person alive.

Some of them, i guess, could be considered bad if you take them to extreme levels, but then so can many good habits (over-exercising, for example, is not a good thing). Many of the 'obvious' items on this list (like smoking, drinking etc) have statistics and facts to back them up, but far too much of the rest of it seems just to have been tacked on with negative opinions and worst-case scenarios to explain, merely to bring it to a top 100 list. The writer should take note of entries 3 and 4, since anyone who could write a list like this must be susceptible to those. a whole ton of these arent really ‘bad’ habits.

As for hiding your email there are alot of bots out there that do look for emails to send spam to and posting your email everywhere without quotes isn't something i would recommend. Raj Dash,

I just happen to be one of three family members with allergies so bad that our medicines cost $100-200/month each. It's very strange that you would be so defensive about something like allergies, and even stranger that you would use the particular fake email that you did. Are you afraid that the author of the article is going to send you email if you used a real address? Adam,
