Finding and deciding how to stop bad habits addictions

  • Time to associate the pleasure to quitting of old habit. Find things that you can associate with the habit, but it is more pleasure when you quit your habit. For a smoker, the pleasure of quitting smoking is healthy lungs, easy breathing, time saved by not smoking, money saved by not smoking, ability to run a marathon, the ability to use stairs without weasing and so on. In my case, it’s the pleasure of lifting weights and feeling energetic inside the gym.
  • We have seen about the primary payoffs on point #1. Now, we need to identify the secondary payoffs. These secondary payoffs are some form of benefits that you get by your current behavior. For a smoker, this could be the sensation of relaxation. The relaxation though comes from nicotine, it also comes from the deep breathing pattern of the smoker during smoking. Try deep breathing without a cigarette in mouth, you will still feel relaxed. You need to always find an alternative to satisfy the same sensation but in a different way. In my case, I get deep breath and relax in gym whenever I lift weights. It satisfies by deep breathing, relaxes me and as well as keeps me engaged in what I want to do.
  • Remember that it could be any of the habits that you want to change and not just smoking. Smoking was taken as an example as it is one of the habit most people call as addiction and could not call quits. Agile coach interview questions
