    I swear a lot. My epitaph will attest to it: "HE SWORE A LOT".

    I pace .. it usually only lasts about 3 or 4 minutes but I can put on a lot of steps in that amount of time depending on how nervous I am. It it's a confined space I am a finger tapper ... should have been a drummer I guess LOL

    I forgot about pacing. I do that too, when I'm *really* nervous.

    I find something productive to do when I'm nervous it just depends on what I'm nervous about and where I am at.

    @Von Jones
    My nervous habit, at least the worst one, dated back to maybe age 5: I bit my nails. Nothing my Mother tried could cure me. Then, at age 21, meeting and getting to know a young woman from Germany who happened to be a hairdresser, somehow prompted me to stop. And no, I didn't chew on her instead,..........at least not much! :oops:

    My nervous habit is not carrying anything in my left hand while in public places.

    I used to smoke a cigarette, but now, life has taken that away from me.
    So now, I just close my eyes until I calm myself down.

    I hum or whistle under my breath when I am feeling edgy.
