Bad habits

I run about 45 miles a week, and last week, one of my friends asked me how I make myself get up and run (almost) every morning. Surprised, I responded, "I like to run! If you want to run, you should just run!"

On the one hand, I really do believe this when I say it: If you really want to run, you run! If you can't make yourself start something, you probably don't really want to do it.
On the other hand (pun coincidental), I'm acutely aware of the plastic French-manicured nails I wear glued on top of my own bitten fingernails to prevent chewing. Is continuing to bite my nails what I really want?
