One of the things that we tell people who struggle with bad habits, whether involving substance abuse or not, is that keeping themselves busy doing something for other people can help them fight the temptation of repeating the activity or habit.

But this does not mean that they have to wear themselves down with their work or whatever activity they are involved in. They must also take time to enjoy their break. It does not have to be an expensive vacation since there are now many sources of Cheap Holidays available on the internet. Sometimes, a break is effective to break patterns especially in a bad habit.
