Time for you to break free from all the bad stuff
Most of our lives are experienced through habits. Habits make life easier because they save us from having to make unnecessary, repetitive decisions. We do not have to re-learn important and sometimes critical lessons because the information becomes ingrained in our habits and into our view of the world. So we learn to respond to the environment around us with a set of programmed responses. These are habits.
Many habits are deeply associated either with pain or with pleasure. We avoid things that might be unpleasant and pursue experiences that we associate with pleasure. Sometimes the message gets confused. The things that can seem to be pleasurable – like smoking, alcohol, drugs, the wrong food – are harming us. But can we change those habits and conditioned responses?
The latest research in the field of cognitive behaviour suggests that we most certainly can. We know that some habits are a product of chemical addictions, a dependence on substances that create powerful urges in our bodies and demand instant satisfaction.
We’re going to take a look at those substances shortly. But one of the reasons why re-hab fails so often tocurepeople of their addictions is that the individual must want to be free of the addiction in the first place.
Learn to recognise that much of your behaviour has been learned at some earlier point in your life, usually during the formative years of early childhood. You are not those habits and those habits are not permanent. They can be changed and adapted to work for you rather than against you. You are not your habits. Remember – you are so much more than the sum total of your behaviours.
