I am the same. I think it has been about a year since I started humming. I live alone and my boyfriend is understanding when I see him but I am sure it gets on his nerves as well as mine. Sometimes I do not realize I have started but when I am aware I stop but start again very soon.
I am not on any tranquillisers, am not stressed so all I can think it is a habit that has to be broken rather than thinking you are going nuts! I have tried having rubber bands on my wrist so and pinging them but that didn't stop it!
I went away with my sister for 2 weeks in April. I was fully aware, and had been warned that she would go crazy if I were to hum all the time.
The strange thing was I don't think I hummed at all - well she never once said I was and I certainly was pleased that I' did not appear to be. However as soon as I got home I was humming again. I am pretty sure that if you are completely occupied in what you are doing you do not hum. I get very strange looks in the supermarket as I hum very momonotously all the way round. How boring us this?View Thread
