  • Ya.. . Nothing. It's annoying. But hey... old habits are hard to get rid off. I crack my fingers and it hurts now... my family reminds me to stop. That's the only thing I know has help me to sort of stop my finger cracking. Good luck. ☺

  • Oooh try the rubber band thing. When you feel like cracking just pull that rubber band on your wrist. Supposedly a negative consequence will teach you that what you are doing is incorrect and hopefully get you out of that habit

  • Everytime you realise you're doing it, stop and shake your hands instead.

    Try to replace the habit with a less subtle action.

  • it's ok not crack the joints by pulling the finger... but the way the picture is doing it.. like bending it, causes arthritis...
    so continue cracking, that's ok... just do it by pulling instead of bending...

      it's ok to crack the joints by pulling the finger

    • It doesn't cause arthritis. It's scientifically proven that all it does is loosen your grip for awhile, and make your fingers less stiff

  • No you can. You must do it.
