stopping the popping
healthwalnut posted:
I too pop my sternum. It just feels so good. But, as it feels better and better, the pain and need in my sternum gets greater and greater. So, I gave it up. At first, it was like a drug and I really wanted to keep popping it. I felt a dull throbbing in the middle of my sternum that just demanded popping. For months, I denied it. And after a few months, the need got less and less until I couldn't feel anything at all. Sometimes, when I sit at a computer for too long, a bit of that feeling of misalighnment returns, but, for me at least, the more I do it, the worse it feels. My advice, quit popping it like a bad habit. It'll take a long time for the pain to stop, but everytime you want to pop it, just say no. Good luck!!
