Do you have any quirky, random, addictive, obsessive behaviours?

I have this thing about cleaning my ears with cotton buds like at least once per day… Its so satisfying to me.
It’s more of an obsessive trait maybe cos its not like ear wax will build up there every day or even every half a day or so…

I spontaneously make the heavy metal hand gesture at odd intervals (maybe 3 times a day) :metal:

I’m a q-tip fiend too. Ears be itching occasionally. Probably from wearing headphones all the time.

I make an attempt to crack my neck pretty frequently. It’s probably caused by my poor posture. I sit on chairs in a weird way.

Soon your pinky will join in too.

I think it’s a sign of Pre-parkinsonISM. :thinking:

I had it when I went off Latuda.

Clozapine stopped it completly.

Are you still taking large L Theanine doses? I think it’ll stop if you drop it.

No. Just 400mg / day.

It’s been this way for years. I think it’s just a nervous tick/habit.
