Breaking Bad Habits

A habit is a powerful means of changing one's life - for better or for worse. It is behaviour exhibited without full awareness and acquired by repetition. Once acquired, it would be very difficult to remove because it has entered one's subconscious. One good strategy to break a bad habit is to fight fire with fire: cultivate a good habit that prevents the bad one from being carried out.

For example, suppose a guy had a habit of scanning for
pretty babes and staring at them on the streets. But after being engaged, he decided to break this habit for fear of World War III. One good habit he could cultivate would be the habit of trying to spot trendy handphones on the streets - his fiancee is also crazy about handphones! Once cultivated, this new habit would subconsciously override his former bad habit.
