    Hi,

    I think that it is idiomatic to say, "I got in the habit of taking a shower in the morning."

    "I got in the habit to take a shower in the morning." is also idiomatic, isn't it?

    Thanks in advance.

    For me, ' . . . to take . . . ' sounds wrong.

    "I got into the habit of taking a shower in the morning."
    :tick:

    "I got in(to) the habit to take a shower in the morning." :cross:

    "I was in the habit of taking a shower every morning." :tick:

    Sorry, but no it isn't.

    I think that's fair comment.

    Thank you, Heypresto and Beryl.

    I'd like to get into the habit of checking the grammar before posting my questions.

    Thanks again,
