Yeah, ive been wondering this to. I usually do it anyways after playing for awhile because if your knuckles can crack it means theyve been tense so i always look for no cracking. That could be a load of bull, but my moms a nurse and she says that, so it might not be bull. But I have been wondering if it could damage the bones or something. Kinda stole your thunder Davo sorry

Repeatedly cracking your knuckles will probably leave you more prone to degenerative bone disease or swelling of the joint causing cartilage problems.

In short; cracking your knuckles will never directly affect your health, but you shouldn't do it.

I used to be addicted to it also, I'm serious you CAN become addicted, but mine was while playing online games and waiting for them to load (Had Dial-up) and Yes it does make joints swell, I did it for about 2 years and my knuckles are larger than they should be, sometimes I get VERY bad pains in them that just won't go away, Playing guitar has actually helped fix them a bit and I don't pop them nearly as much now. But yes, it's very bad and I would try to stop.

I stopped by keeping a glass of ice nearby and eating it instead, I know it's bad also, but it's better than swollen knuckles, it's like my mind just craved the cracking sound. And BTW, I'm only 16 ~_~ So it really sux having larger than normal (not huge) knuckles

Why does everyone always think it's bad? Just because of the sound?

I'm still baffled that people don't use Google for things like these. I can't even begin to tell you home many times a day I use Google for any and everything. It's a valuable tool, use it!
