Bad habits are all those things we do that do not guide us to anything good. This includes smoking, sleeping in incorrect places. How do we control or break them we need to accept we are doing something that is not doing us any good when you mindfully recognize your habit you can break it.
” A bad habit is a negative behavior pattern. Common examples include procrastination, fidgeting, overspending, stereotyping, gossips, bullying, and nail-biting.
It is not a misconception that it takes on average 66 days to break a habit. The amount of time it takes to break a habit is generally between 18 and 254 days. This should often be repeated once or maybe twice depending on what the habit is, something small like chewing fingernail should only have to be done once. larger habits like smoking should be repeated at twice but everyone is different so it could be less. There are many techniques for removing bad habits once they have become established. One good one is to go for between 21 and 28 days try as hard as possible not to give in to the habit then rewarding your self at the end of it. Then try to go a week, if the habit remains to repeat the process, this method is proven to have a high success rate.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bad_habit
