Habits are things that people do good or bad repeatedly. People start their own habits, and they are very hard to break. Whether it is good or bad habits; it is something that the person has to choose to change. A habit in terms is: “Jerry likes to ride his bike,” that is one of Jerry’s habits.
Breaking bad habits is one of the hardest things to do. Smoking is a bad habit that millions of people choose to do. Some people smoke due to stress and other issues, which still doesn’t make the habit good. People die from cancer because of smoking and people still choose to smoke. Breaking this habit comes with a perfect mind state and patience and a will to stop completely.
Drinking alcohol carelessly is a bad habit that some people have. Drinking too much alcohol can eat your kidney and liver, which can end in a terrible illness. Millions of people drink irresponsibly, which is also the main reason for car accident deaths. An estimated 10,839 people died in the United States in 2012 due to drunk driving accidents accounting to 32% of total traffic deaths. (>Drunk Driving>Research)
The process to breaking smoking habits is first to acknowledge that it is wrong. Secondly you have to be willing to quit. The outcome is to stop smoking. Third you have to ask for help with this habit (preferably a doctor, or a close friend who has quit smoking). After completing your first stage of quitting cigarettes you may need a nicotine patch to ease the cravings, but you have made a great effort to stop smoking and you made a good choose to break a bad habit.
