    custom/ habit

    Hi there


    1. He kicked the habit of smoking.

    2. He kicked the custom of smoking.


    Do you use the word "custom" to mean "habit"?

    Both words can be translated into the same word in my native language, so they're a little confusing.

    I'd appreciate your help.

    Re: custom/ habit

    Individuals have habits. Social or ethnic groups have customs.
