Can you help me with English please?
The present simple is used to talk about HABITS (tendency) or ROUTINES.
Here are some examples:
1. I smoke. It is a habit.
2. I like pizza. It is a habit.
3. I go to work. It is a routine.
4. I get up at 7 am. It is a routine.
Am I right? I love English! :)

The present tense can also signify an ongoing situation or condition, such as:
I like pizza. [Liking something is not a habit. It is true whether or not it is often indulged in.]
I live in California.
I believe in miracles.

Liking pizza is a PREFERENCE, not a habit or routine.

Seems ok. One quibble:
Liking pizza is not a habit, eating pizza is,
but I guess that is my legal drafting coming to the fore.

Yes, this is accurate.
