Habits Vs. Addictions

What exactly is a bad habit? Is it an addictions? Are they the same things? These are some questions you might be wondering like me. But no, habits are repeated actions or decisions that become automatic and are challenging to stop and don’t affect mental ability or memory, but addictions, are mostly negative, and can affect your mental ability, memory and impulse control.

While habits are something, you repeatedly do for sixty-six days or more that it becomes subconscious to where it’s automatic and become an unnoticed daily routine. Doing something over and over again is a great way to create muscle memory, which is why habits are somewhat mastery of a craft, skill, or act.

As for addictions, it’s the compulsive need that you have for a certain thing or substance to the body, which you wouldn’t like to be deprived of. While habits can be tough to modify or change, addictions are even harder and may have life-threatening consequences.

Breaking Bad Habits

We all have bad habits, and as habits are things we do subconsciously, it’s hard to notice our flaws. So before you can break your bad habits, you will first have to analyze yourself and define for yourself if it’s good or bad for you.

We all know that smoking isn’t good for our body, but the tobacco industry is a $35.1 billion whether you do it to relieve stress or it’s an addiction. It will be up to you to decide whether it's good for you or not.

If you use it to relieve stress, find something else that will help you relieve stress like exercising. If it’s an addiction, get some help to help you quit and get back to making your body into a temple.

1. Fine yourself

Every time you find yourself making the habit that you have presumed to be bad to the person you are working to become, find yourself a small or big fine that will work toward you developing a habit that will help you achieve your goals.

The more painful you make it, the more you will recognize when you do it, and the more the brain will realize that it’s bad for you. Losing money is a great motivator to stop doing something, so if you give your friend $10 every time you make the bad habit you will soon quit.

If your friend's a good friend they'll invest it into a fundrise account for you instead of spending it on their self. What is Fundrise?

2. Learn what triggers the habit

Understand what triggers you to make the subconscious decision to make the habit is key to conquering. Five triggers of bad habits are location, time, emotional state, people around you, and an immediate reaction.

Every time you engage in the same bad habit, make a note of those five things. Look for similarities, and this will help you find your trigger to the habit and can start making changes to solve it.

3. Make tiny changes

Just like when you are building a new habit go slow. Take time to learn your triggers as breaking your bad habits are even harder. Be patient with yourself and focus on conquering one habit at a time.

4. Evaluate your progress

Spend times to think about your progress about your habit and evaluate your progress. You might be itching to get rid of the habit but takes it slow. Record every time you find yourself doing it and list the reason you want to quit.

Even with your best intentions, you will fall back into the bad habit, get back up, and build up your willpower. If the habit keeps happening in the same place, it will be best that you change your environment.

If you go on a smoke break in the smoke pit, stop yourself from going to the smoke pit and stay and place you can’t smoke. Be sure to keep recording your progress and coach yourself out of the bad habit.
