5 top ways of killing bad habits
Replace them with good habits:
Bad habits are addictive and you will always yearn to indulge in them, so the urge will always be there but to keep them at bay, think of a good thing to do when the craving comes. If you smoke and drink heavily, you can replace it with something healthy. The truth is that you will always want to indulge in a habit but you can still indulge in it but this time with a healthy alternative of it.
Avoid places of triggers:
As a chain smoker or drinker, there’s no way you can resist them when you find yourself in the club, at the beer joint or hotels. Avoid these places. If you are addicted to porn, stop going to porn sites. You can put a restriction on yourself for going to places that will trigger your bad habits.
Have a new circle of friends
We get ourselves into all sorts of habits a lot of times from the kind of friends we keep. This makes the adage true that birds of a feather flock together. If you have friends that urge you on, on most of your bad habits then you need to change your circles of friends. You will always find people you might want to model your life after, then go makes friends with them and disentangle yourself from your previous bad circles.
Join a positive group
You just have to join forces with someone or people to help them hold you accountable and be there to push you on. You can either form a group or join groups with the same interest so that one can keep a tab on you and help you make more progress.
A day at a time
Don’t be in a haste to see changes and become impatient about the whole progress. Take a snail pace if that is the pace you can succeed with. Try to be a better person every second and before you know it, you would get there. Remember success lies in you and you just need to visualize only success and believe you will win this against all odds. So move with any pace provided you are making progress no matter the little difference.
