I used to crack my neck alot, and now my neck seems tight and sore, but at the same time I have a great desire to twist my head hard from side to side... to the point that I can't stop myself from doing it if I try...

  • Hehe, I've been doing this as well, and now I have a very sore nech around those to tendons near the the throat, and I still feel like cracking it.The sore neck comes from the violent twists, and the urge comes from making it a habit. I know I never cracked my bones for a long time, but now I do it frequently and it doesn't feel right when I don't. I would suggest something as simple as putting ice on it.As for the urge, just stop. I know that sounds hard, but you can will yourself out of that one.
