Smoking, biting nails, yelling at your kids, whatever bad habit you want to get rid of. Most people quit bad habits when the costs of keeping them are too high. They reach a point where they just don’t want to continue and then a mental shift occurs and they want to stop it. Some people do it on their own and others could use some help.
You can follow this Workbook with a few modifications. The emphasis will shift to the costs of continuing the habit for example, smoking can cause cancer, smoking burns my throat and lungs. If a modification needs to be made it will be added at end of the Post.
While we try to have positive goals changing bad habits needs something to tell us ‘to stop’ the habit. You can use ‘stop’ or ‘no longer’ or ‘I don’t bite my nails a more positive one “I am a nonsmoker” or any words you want. Whatever works for you.
I stop biting my nails
Today I don’t bite my nails
I no longer yell at….
I stop crunching cough drops with my teeth (mine)
I no longer scratch my sore
