    Hi bousn
    Your sentences are great, but I think you can say
    2-One of my bad habit is that I can't control my temper. it is clearer and easy to get.
    2- anyone not anone
    3-I always regret losing my temper
    4-But it happens again

    Hi Bosun

    1) Cannot improve on it
    2) Typo Anyone
    3) At the end Consider... decide never again or just...... not to do it again ...not to do it anymore or never again to lose control
    4) Fine typo... with capital.... I

    Remind me never to be around when you lose it!!!

    Not being able to control your temper is not a habit, but it certainly can be a problem. (A habit is something that you do over and over without thinking about it.) Perhaps:
    Not being able to control my temper is a big problem for me.
