I am guilty of cracking knuckles too and it drives my Fiance crazy.. He hates the sound of it and keeps bugging me to stop.  I have heard it might be bad on the tendons but I know it won’t cause artheritis..

I don’t know, but so many things are bad for you. I don’t smoke, I hardly drink, don’t do drugs…

I crack….

My fingers, my toes, my back, my neck….

It just feels so good 🙂

When we were little kids my Dad would get us to crack his fingers for him. Other people thought it was gross but I thought it was so much fun!! But – he did scare me into never doing it myself so I never picked up the habit. “Do as I say and not as I do…”

I’m an addicted knuckle cracker since I was four. And I can attest that my grip is definitely weaker. Sometimes my hands will just spaz out and I will drop whatever I’m gripping: fork, pencil, and the worst is a hot hair straightener/curler on my shoulders. But honestly, I don’t think I could quit if I tried, and I probably only do the random dropping once a year or so.

I crack my knuckles every now and again. Today I did it without much care, and saw one customer kind of give that annoyed look. Opps. I’m bad about that and cracking my big toes. I just wiggle them and snap, crackle and pop! lol…
