A common quote which I keep hearing goes something like, thoughts become desires,desires form into actions, actions become practice and your practice may become an habit. No one mentions the part of habits turning into yokes. The ultimate antidote to restoring man to a state of wholeness is in JESUS, that’s what I believe. This does not outrule however, the need for some other ingredients:
1. Open confrontation of the habit, talk to a friend or leader about it. I personally have had fights with various habits and I have failed in some many times but I have also found that staying in the open about it and not keeping it secret helps give more confidence to face the habit.
2. Take drastic measures of discipline
A lifelong smoker keen to quit has taken drastic measures to kick the habit – he has locked his head in a cage which prevents him from putting a cigarette in his mouth. (Photo below)
