My strings keep breaking, no matter which brand i use. I use 9's usually, is this why they keep breaking or cud it be the fault of my playing style??

you are using really light strings thats why, i personally used to use 11's for bending, and blues, but switched back down to 10 for faster stuff.

i think the strings are not the problem. i would guess your bridge is too sharp, had the same problem with my epi paula . just make it blunt and it'll do fine i think.

They usually tend to break right down at the bridge, they dont always break but kinda stretch out like springs sometimes

allow them to streatch when restringing your guitar. Just tighten gradually, really slowly, dont even worry about getting it in tune at the start. Tug up at about the neck pickup, not too hard but enough to give it a bit more reach. Only other thing i can suggest is to use good quality strings, I use ernie balls personally but ask your shoppie

You get a file then file (carefully) the part of the bridge where the string touches it. Then you put some machine oil on your standard tremolo and move it around a bit. That helped my guitarist solve the same problem. He broke regularly his high E string (9).
