I have one, you have one.

If you remove the first letter, a bit remains.

If you remove the second, bit still remains.

After much trying, you might be able to remove the third one also, but it remains.

It dies hard!

Is it:

Habit? Remove the first letter to get "abit", the second to get "bit", and the third to get "it". A habit may fit the clue "dies hard" but possibly some of these other words could also: http://crossword-solver.org/%3Fabit

You are talking about

the word habit

I have one, you have one.

We all have our own habits.

If you remove the first letter, a bit remains.

Removing the 'h', you get the letters 'abit'.

If you remove the second, bit still remains.

Removing the second letter 'a', you get the letters 'bit'.

After much trying, you might be able to remove the third one also, but it remains.

Removing the third letter 'b', you are left with 'it'.

It dies hard!

It's a popular saying that habits die hard.
