It will be need a constant hammering. Never expect it to happen in one day, you will sometimes fall back to your old habits but defiantly break the pattern again if your have set your mind. Always remind yourself why you started, why did do choose to change and most of all what was the feeling that made you want to change. It is a life-long struggle so why not start now? Do not fight the old habits by denying them but fight them by first accepting that they exist. Then focus on the goodness of your new habits and be still bold to follow the new you. Remind. Follow. Repeat.
