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! :)

Thank you!

    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.
