Earlier this month, a survey in Britain about bad habits found that people struggle most with trying to give up smoking, although many also are addicted to coffee, Facebook, reality TV, cracking their knuckles and a myriad of other so-called vices.

We decided to ask our Facebook fans about the bad habits they find impossible to break, and we received a wide range of responses. Here are 13 of them. Have any to add? Let us know in comments.

1) "Playing FreeCell every time I sit down at my computer!" said Anise Winokur Singer.
