Habit of Addiction = Circle( Trigger -> Routine -> Reward )
Every addiction has these three steps in common. Trigger happens when we are striked by the urges. Then we follow the same Routine to achieve the Reward. No matter how hard we try we can’t change the Trigger and Reward. But we can change the Routine, which would cause a different result. Change the routine by another routine to get a different Reward, which won’t lead to any side effect. Changed routine must cause a reward, because no-reward brings frastration and frastration lessens the willingness. The reward would be enough inspiration to follow the changed routine when next trigger is occurred again.
Remember : It’s not easy to completely remove the habit altogether. But we can replace the steps of the habit as it takes very little of will power.
Slowly, we’ll not be easily triggered because changed Reward is not releasing dopamine.
You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine. The price of discipline is high but so are the rewards.
