      How to Break a Habit

      "To break a bad habit, analyze it and find out
      what the disadvantages are of having that habit.
      If you are convinced that there is a disadvantage,
      that will weaken the habit. At the same time, think
      of an opposite good habit that can replace the
      bad habit. For example, whenever you think of
      overeating, embark on a fast. Think of the ill
      effects of overeating and the benefits of fasting.
      To achieve this, avoid the situations that
      increase the chances that you will overeat.
      Habits are not only in the mind; every cell
      becomes conscious of the habit. So, until even the
      cells forget that habit, you avoid reminding them.
      Also, get into the company of those who don't
      overeat or who don't smoke. In that way you
      can break any habit.
