I have an annoying habbit which I can't seem to stop - playing with my nose!

For some unknown reason I fiddle with the end of my nose, and basically squeeze/squish it together and make it click etc.

I have a visible line/indent crease down the middle where the 2 sides of my nose meet and I've noticed many other people have this too, but I'm worried if I keep messing with it something might go wrong and cause my nose to actually get damaged.

Problem is, I can't stop it, and I'm doing it every other minute! It must look weird to other people too, although admittedly I don't do it that much around others, it happens most when I'm browsing boards or the net.

What can I do?

Isn't that when they keep giving you strawberries to get you to do/stop doing something?
That is classical / pavlovian conditioning yes, though that's positive conditioning. There is also negative conditioning, which funnily enough works a lot faster.

- Appears I missed it too :( :o
