Breaking Bad: Habits

Have you wondered why breaking a bad habit is so difficult? Charles Duhigg, author of The Power Of Habit, describes a cookie-eating habit that he wanted to break. 

Every day, Duhigg says, he found himself going to the cafeteria to buy a chocolate chip cookie. As he got more mindful of this habit, Duhigg discovered his cookie craving hit about 3 and 3.30 in the afternoon. He also figured out that every afternoon he'd buy a cookie and talk to his colleagues in the cafeteria. As he thought more about this habit, he realized that what was actually driving his habit was not the cookie itself but the chance to socialize! And just like that, the cookie could be done away with. Here him talk about his experience here: https://youtu.be/W1eYrhGeffc
