The only way to break an unhealthy habit is to replace it with a new and healthy habit. If it doesn’t scratch that same itch, it will be tough. • For example, I use to be in a habit of “needing” dessert every night. I wanted to break my self of this, so I tried eating fruit instead. NOPE! Didn’t scratch that itch. So I tried some yummy hot decaf caramel tea and one piece of dark chocolate. BINGO! My pleasure sensors liked it enough to break my habit of night ice cream.
