Hi John, well we indulge in bad habits because we seem to be rewarded by doing so, so for example, if you feel down or even happy you want to have a drink to try and cheer yourself up or because you want to go to that extra step of enjoying yourself even further to find the comfort we are looking for.
If other people are doing the same thing, then it must be okay for us to do it as well, so
it’s not too difficult to find socially acceptable bad habits, so how can we break this, well it depends on what we are trying to stop.
Stress can be the main trigger to a bad habit, so what has developed this habit in the first place, difficult times, wanting to feel at ease or be happy or to get you out of an awkward situation.
If we have a failed marriage/relationship we tend to want something that will help us through, but it may have to be straight away, so we drink or take drugs and these take an incredible amount of help to stop them.
I have to go out now but will get back to you, sorry.
Some are legal while others aren't, while others are expensive and some not, I say this as people maybe addicted to
