Bad habit:
Playing DoomRL while at work/sleepy/drunk/pissed off/stressed/horny/showing off to friends/whatever other distraction you can imagine.
I'm nearly constantly under at least one of these conditions - maybe that is why I am such a lousy player ...

A really nasty habit is to run around holding the key. Several YASDs, fortunately, help to cure that.
From my personal experience: I stopped doing that after my character drowned in lava in the Chained Court after the level was cleared.

1.  Clear all levels to 100% when not on challenges.  I can, with great difficulty, bring myself to stop attackign a pack of 4 former sergeants on AoB.

2.  Hoard medkits and any powerup greater than a small health globe.  I always like to save them until the end of the level.  After all, I can *probably* survive with 36% health, right?  I am somewhat reasonable when it comes to using small medkits  but I am terrible with large medkits, which I generally don't use unless I hit 20% health or less.  This has led to many mancubus deaths.

3.  Hoarding plasma cells.  After I figured out how to clear city of skulls with rocket jump (after you pull lever and after the agony elemental spawns), I found the BFG wasn't really necessary.  But I still carry around 5 stacks of cells with almost any build, just in case.

4.  Hoarding rockets.  I like to save a lot of rockets as insurance for the Wall.  But post-wall there is no reason whatsoever to hoard so many.  I will typically carry 2-3 stacks around until I end up discarding them for something more useful.

5.  Avoiding radar shooting in hell.  The thing is, I *hate* blowing up items/powerups as a result of barrel explosions.  But I need to do this more, especially to detect Mancubi.

I've got a new one - treating the tactical shotgun like it was a combat shotgun (or rather like it was standard shotgun). I rarely realize that I can unload all the shells at once without reloading.

I also try to start running even though I'm already running, getting an instant tired tactic.

I didn't know you could turn off running early. I don't think that's too useful. I guess you could wait until an enemy fires, then turn it off and fire yourself without the accuracy hit. I guess you turn it off once you find good cover. That's pretty useful.

Last time I was playing some easy mode and I had 6 small and 1 large Med-Pack. Guess what? I got KOed by a Former Human.

Dualreloading with enemies in sight. Costed me a YASD vs a lava elemental HNTR last night, when the beast decided to walk towards me and melee instead of whacking me from a distance against fireproof red armor.

I'm playing a MGK build right now with combat pistol (P1) + GCB. I can't remember the last time I had to reload. And even if I do, it just changes the firing mode on the GCB. You have to reload them manually. It's kinda nice, really.

Here's a good habit I've been encouraging lately: any time I hear a mancubus, arch-vile, or revenant, I switch to red armor, even with my speedy dodge builds. (Not like you can dodge their attacks, anyway).

that was an MGK, but no Beretta or any other pistols, just two P-modded ones.

well, you CAN dodge an archvile attack, you are given ~1.0s after "The arch-vile raises its arms!" message, but the attack has splash radius 2. I have managed to get 0.5 walk speed with tactical armor/boots and 2 HR levels and Scout, or 0.4 with phaseshift boots/A. (No phaseshift armor together with boots tho)
