Habits, breaking and making



It is easier to learn a new habit than to put aside an old habit.

Thus to reduce the old habit, one must adopt a new habit that inhibits and cancels out the chance to do the old habit.

The old habit is smoking.  The new habit involves sucking on a plastic spoon.  One can not smoke and suck the spoon simultaneously.  Thus, the more easily learned new habit, cancels or covers up the chance to practice the old habit.
