subconscious- automatic; not based on thinking
conscious- fully aware; on purpose
admit- to tell the truth
once and for all- finally, without any chance of changing your mind
follow through- to stick to your plan

setbacks- events or situations that prevent or delay your goal
inevitable- will happen no matter what

How can we break them?
Do you bite your nails or twirl your hair? Maybe you eat too quickly or check your email ten times an hour. Most of us have one bad habit or another. Habits are subconscious. This means we perform them automatically without thinking. Stress, boredom, and fatigue can cause our habits to worsen.
Experts say it takes three months to form a habit. How long does it take to break a habit? Unlike biting your nails, breaking this habit requires conscious effort.
The first thing to do is to admit what your habit is. Next, decide once and for all that you are ready to break it. Come up with a plan and follow through. You don’t have to quit cold turkey. Accept that there will be setbacks; they are inevitable. Don’t beat yourself up when you have a setback. Think of the well known saying: “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Do you get any enjoyment out of your habit? It is a good idea to name the reasons why your habit is “bad”.
Does it embarrass you or others? Does it cost a lot of money? Tell other people your plan to break this habit.Log your progress and your setbacks. When you kick your habit, congratulate yourself! Now you have the tools to break the next one.
