Grammar Mistakes We Make - Continual and Continuous

A continuous long, long road


Continual means something regularly occurs but with lapses. Continuous means something that continues without interruption. One would hope that one's breathing and heartbeat are continuous. While eating healthy and exercise, for me, is a continual fight.


OO! Sexy!


The continual success of the Stones is a thorn in my side and a source of confusion to me.


Now that I've written the word continual so often it has ceased to sound like a real word. It sounds like nonsense to me. Why does that happen?
