Discipline, motivation and practice. Be aware and when you catch yourself doing it, stop right away, and do something else. First, though think of something else you will do instead and do that instead (something healthy, or harmless). Walk, write in journal, (in this journal write down when and why you think of doing the behavior, what triggers it, etc). Enlist help from family and friends to remind you to stop when the see you doing it.

For someone to crunch their knuckles they turn their palms away from themselves and bend their fingers backwards. The joints make a cracking noise due to the release of fluid surrounding the joints.

Can cracking your knuckles mess up playing guitar?

I'm thinking the same thing...... I keep cracking my knuckles and i have realized that my flexibility in my fingers is going and i'm finding it hard to keep up with the faster riffs(not finding them hard but becoming tired more easy), my solo playing is also effected as i cant play scales at an even speed anymore. It seems worrying and i know you can lose habits, but for me if i don't crack my fingers then they become stiff and it feels a lot better when cracked, that is the main reason i do it.
