I have a regular habit that has caused me some pain and embarrassment in the past.

Habit=The behavior?
Habit=The clothing (eg a nun's habit)?
Habit=Some other definition?

Do you still have the habit? Does it still cause you pain? embarrassment?

When you had the pain/embarrassment was your age...
under 10? 10-12? 13-16? 17-20? 21+?

Habit=The clothing (eg a nun's habit)? Haha, very lateral thinking.
Habit=Some other definition?

Do you still have the habit? Yes Does it still cause you pain? embarrassment? Every once in a while, but it's been a while.

When you had the pain/embarrassment was your age...
under 10? 10-12? 13-16? 17-20? 21+? I've had it since about age 13, and still do now at age 19.

Do other people have the same habit? If so, does it cause them pain and embarrassment as well?

Does the habit involve saying something? doing something?

Your family life? Your social life with friends? Your dating life? Doing your school work in class? school work at home? None of these, with the exception of my friends/family teasing me a bit.

Do other people have the same habit? I know several people who do. I think it's fairly common. If so, does it cause them pain and embarrassment as well? Sometimes

Do you wear glasses?

Does the solution involve using optical instruments?

Does it involve reading?

Does your eye inadvertently get poked by something? Does it get strained somehow?

Not the infamous spoon in a teacup? Ouch! Yes! Well, coffee to be exact.

SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
***********************************************************************
I drink coffee almost every day. I like to add more coffee and creamer to the same mug over the course of the day. Unfortunately, I usually leave the spoon in the mug for stirring. This means every once in a while I go to sip and the spoon pokes my eye. Not a serious injury, but rather embarrassing with witnesses.
Good work everyone, especially Emeraldink for putting all the pieces together.

I do that too, and when I was younger, my mum would constantly remind me not to do it. However, so far I have never poked my eye. *knocks on wood*
