Do You Want to Break Your Bad Habits?
Here is some information that will be able to help you. Each and every one of us needs to break bad habits. The thing is concerning a bad habit; it takes approximately between 30-90 days or so to break the habit depending on how long you have had it. Be sure to include the breaking of your bad habits in prayer and ask others for their help too. The best advice when breaking a bad habit is to create a new habit to replace it. It all sounds easy to do, and basically, it is.
But be prepared for roadblocks and temptations to get you off your goal. If by chance you do fail in your initial attempt to break your habit, do not give up. It took me almost three years to quit smoking cigarettes, but now I am so thankful that I did not give up trying. You can break bad habits, but it will take some work, patience, prayer, and perseverance to do so!
Are you tired of your bad habit(s)? Quitting a habit or sin is one of the hardest things in life, but it becomes easy when we realize Jesus didn’t just die to forgive us of our sin, but to give us power over it, and to free us from being in bondage to anything. Stop trying to stop! Instead, focus on stopping yourself from wrong thinking. As a man thinks, so is he. Your thoughts will shape your decisions; your decisions will shape your actions. Your actions will shape your habits. Philippians 4:8-9 ~ Bill Greguska
