Revolving Door o' Bad Habits

Lost 20 pounds. Stopped. Need to lose 20 more.
Quit biting my fingernails.
Stopped drinking for six weeks now.
Took up smoking again (about 10 cigs per week).

I don’t understand myself.

But I really don’t understand people who don’t do ANY of the things I struggle with. How do you stick to a goal? HOW? Someone tell me how to beat down the sixteen-year-old who lives in my head so I can live a happy and healthy life.

Tell me.

43 people read this and not one of them had advice?

I guess I’m not the only one who juggles 'em.

The only bad habit I’ve given up is biting my fingernails. My hands have never looked prettier.

I’ve quit smoking twice but both times I quit was when I was pregnant and had a good reason to. Guess I don’t really have any advice I just wanted to be the first one to post to your thread!

I wish I had some advice for you, but I can only type for so long with my nearly infected nails and shredded nailbeds.

All I can say is: if you fall off that horse, get back on and persist. That’s the only way to stop bad habits. Or just give in to them. I like that option, personally.
You’ll have to excuse me now- I think my index fingernail just grew 1/2 a millimeter and I must chew it off immediately.
