This month the Switched-On article deals with breaking those bad habits. Almost everyone has some sort of bad habit that they would like to rid themselves of entirely. My bad habit is that I bite my nails constantly. When I’m bored, nervous, or feel like my nails look slightly off. It is a horrible habit that I have tried years to eliminate through various methods. Actually, the only method I have tried was wearing nail polish to make my nails taste really weird, but after a week, I got used to the taste of the nail polish. After what I thought should have been a foolproof method I pretty much gave up. The thing about breaking a bad habit is patience and commitment, but, unfortunately, those don’t come easy to people especially when they are trying to change something about themselves. I had given up on breaking my nail biting habit, but the New Year has inspired me to change. I hope that this time next year we will all accomplish this seemingly impossible act. – Ruben
