Why is there such great power in favorable habits to bring about
change in our life? Because by their very nature, habits are
machinelike. After a time period they may become permanent. A
habit becomes a voluntary process and in turn develops into an
assumed behavior pattern that becomes part of you.
Foul habits, dependence and healthy habits are subconscious
behaviors forged through repetition. Individuals who have adverse
health habits are aware of the effects and risks to their well-being.
They feel the squeeze on their wallets. They also Understand other
people get annoyed and bothered being around them.
But as long as they’re reluctant to abandon the foul practice, they’ll
allow their mental conditioning to have control over their lives. If they
do stop, it’s temporary. They’ll get back to it again.
It takes approximately twenty-one days of determination and
correction to alter or form a fresh habit. Some of these that have been
deep-rooted so deep in the brain will take a lot longer. This is why
there are support groups and tools to assist individuals with addictive
behavior. Some individuals can’t do it alone or have no self-control.
