Habits - Making and Breaking

I'm going to do some research today. I remember reading that it takes 21 days to establish a habit. A comment left on yesterday's post made me curious about how many days it takes to BREAK a habit! If I establish a good habit of walking, how many days of NOT walking would it take to get me OUT OF the habit?

And what exactly IS a habit anyway? There are some habits that are next to impossible to break - like biting ones nails or smoking. Why is it not as difficult to break the "walking habit" as it is to break a "nail-biting habit"?
