The Definition of an Antipattern

A friend of mine has studied antipatterns extensively and asked me "What would be the best way to identify an antipattern in my code"?

To increase his confusion, I said "Almost everything from your code you've just shown to me is considered an antipattern".

Then I've added "Relax, this is not true. It's just you falling into paranoia of antipatterns".

Antipatterns are very popular these days ;) Writing good, antipatterns-free code is not trivial.
