We don’t really quit a habit. It’s just an endless war against the temptation.

Quit smoking? You simply got good at resisting it.

Became sober? You simply learned to avoid alcohol.

The years since you last engaged with an undesirable habit don’t really give you immunity to the addictive effects of those substances or behaviour. It’s ridiculously easy to fall back into the habit. We’re never quite “done” with bad habits.

So think of it this way: You’re building up a new strength — the strength to resist. And you’ll only keep getting stronger as the days go by.

Keep fighting the good fight.
