What has been the most difficult habit for you to break?

Were you able to succeed? What tips would you offer to others?

Most difficult habit to break was saying "man" a lot. I would say, "How you doing man?" The way I broke the habit was to substitute "man" for the person's name. If I didn't know the person's name, I would use "ma'am" or "sir."

Smile Deliverance Works Better for me...

I don't bother to try to break bad habits ever since I discovered God's deliverance which has proved to be much more powerful and effective than self discipline. I just pray for Him to take a bad habit away and when He does it is finished.

the most difficult habit i had to break was my smoking habit. but that was 19 years ago so it doesn't feel like a big deal anymore.

I have a few take away lessons from it like 'if you succeed, the work doesn't stop'

I know that I can never have another cigarette.

If I succeed in changing my lifestyle and giving my health a big boost, I know I can never go back to the unhealthy habits, unless i want to throw away what I've worked hard for.

I have a glass of red wine every night and have been doing this for several years. The bad part of the habit are those times that I go for a second glass - so now I only have 1/2 glass and then go back for another 1/2 glass - as feeble as that sounds - I'm now drinking half amount of wine that I used too Lol

That's exactly the reasoning I used in going half-caff for our morning coffee -- we were going to drink a couple of mugs of it anyway, so if caffeine could be an issue for anything, now we're consuming half as much.

The beauty of this is that, drinking only half as much, you can buy better wine (or coffee)!

I've never bought decaffeinated coffee, is it cheaper? Odd if so, that would mean I have been paying for them to take no extra steps to leave the caffeine in.

Typically decaf is more expensive per pound/unit because it requires more processing to remove the caffeine.

Quitting cigarettes after 30 years of smoking was quite a challenge. Electronic cigarette helped a lot. Since February 2014 I am smoke free.
