The Little Dragon is Dead


This is a story of my 2-year-long struggle with an unwanted habit of cracking my neck, which had gotten out of hand around 2013-2015. If it seems to you like it's not a serious problem, consider:

  • it's a serious health hazard (it seems that repeated strain of the neck area can eventually cause e.g. a stroke),

  • it made me look socially awkward, bordering on retarded at the peak of intensity,

  • there are powerful subconscious mechanisms that regulate muscle tension and produce the impulse to stretch, and denying them results in ever growing pressure that eventually breaks your will, or if it doesn't it happens at the slightest lapse in attention,
