Bad Habit And Pills
Bad habit and pills – that sounds as if I have an awful tale to tell.
Tablets and a bad habit are on my mind this morning.
Yesterday I went to get my repeat prescription for the barrow load of tablets I have to take.
BUT – there was an issue ( I still don’t understand what – but there you are) and the prescription needed to be set up again by my doctor and with luck and a strong wind they will be there by tomorrow.
So by rooting around in the medicine cabinet, I found I had got enough for this morning.
And then Goodness me – NO!….
We were out of Yoghurt!! Was this going to be one of those days?
Why was that a disaster – well years ago I had to get over something that for me was an issue. I just couldn’t swallow tablets – no matter how small. A learned bad habit.
How crazy are we all?
Bad habit – it surely was. I could eat normally – but a tablet in my mouth was a gagging starter.
The time came though where I had to get over this problem. I had got to get over this as my health depended on me ‘taking the pills’.
Porridge and yoghurt became the answer. Within no time I was swallowing tablets easily as long as it was with a yoghurt or similar.
Today – this morning – I had no yoghurt or porridge.
Question? – was the bad habit still there.
So I gave it a go – glass of water and what happened?
It was fine – there was no issue at all. That is the first time I have tried to take tablets with water for many years. Isn’t the mind weird but wonderful?
Now there is a really important thing here about making changes to your mindset.
Changing Bad Habits – It’s Hard
Conventional wisdom is that it takes 28 days to free yourself from a bad habit.
Unfortunately, that notion is just plain wrong.
Bad habits are hard to break because they are HABITS (notice the capital letters).
Remember: your brain has put your bad habit in the “automatic” category. Once there, it’s difficult to shake it free.
Yes, 28 days can give you a good jump start. It is probably longer and more like three months to substitute a new behaviour for a bad habit.
But I know from working with Hypnotherapist Adam Eason that behaviours and bad habits can be changed – helped by hypnosis or self-hypnosis.
NOTE: The definition Bad – can be interpreted quite widely.
Laziness is a good example: Let’s say that laziness is a bad habit or maybe poorly motivated is like a bad habit. Then why not get a new mindset on that one.

You Must Want To Change to Make New Good Habits
What ever you own personal issues (yes you have them) set about making the change – “I am going to get rid of that bad habit”
That is the FIRST part of going about changing a bad habit – WANTING TO DO IT.
In Fact We Make That Point On A Sales Page
On the sales page for ‘Stop Smoking Now‘ – Adam asks the question – Do you really want to stop? He then suggests that you should not purchase the product if you haven’t already decided that you want to do it. Nothing will work until you have made that decision.
The arguments for stopping smoking are enormous and a smoker can be shown every reason to stop. NO GOOD until the smoker has taken that first step. The first step is you making up your mind.
That is the same for all habits.
Want to make the change and self-hypnosis will totally help you change your mindset and adopt a new self image and new mindset that supports that inner feeling.
The greatest thing is that the change becomes the new normal good habit. The change eventually becomes the new reality.
You can change AS LONG AS YOU WANT TO and change permanently.
