im having a really hard time giving up a bad habit.
its not an addiction to a drug.
ive even read “‘7 habits of highly effective people” and i cant even finish it because i understand it, but i just have a hard time applying what i know.
the same thing happens with my bad habit. i know why i shouldn’t do it, i take the steps necessary to not do it, but then i end up doing it all over again either because of pressure from my self or nervousness, but this is just my theory of why i keep doing it. i don’t know the real reason and ive talked to my therapist about the same issue years ago and to others but everyone talk about it like breaking a bad habit is easy. like you just stop doing it and that’s it. there must be something very wrong with me because its never worked that way. ive hated my bad habit for as long as i can remember (im not exaggerating), even in elementary school i did it and that’s when i started disliking it because i realized how it was affecting the people around me. now, im way older, and its still ruining me. i would go to a therapist gain but i don’t think this issue is that serious since everyone talks about it like im an idiot and habits are super easy to break.
id love to know how you overcame your most addictive habit please. i think it might help. any input would be nice as-well.
