Negative! Yours are great. There are usually several ways to say something. You say it one way, and that reminds me of another way. It doesn't mean that yours are bad and mine are better. They are just different. My posts supplement yours, they do not replace them.

You can also say "to fall into the habit" and "to fall out of the habit". See? Just writing about habits made me think of another way.
