Habits are hard to break, aren't they? That is why we harp on our kids about being careful with those "little" idiosyncracies. That is why we prevent the first smoke, the bad choice, the ugly table manners.
Certain things can wield uncanny power over us. Then once they are chained to us, then breaking them is another story altogether. After quitting for the 20th time, we give up hope. And give up trying.
Take heart, no power - absolutely no power, with the exception of Jesus Christ, remains. The sun will go dark, politicians will be voted out, dethroned or deposed. Even addictions submit.
