Would you ever wonder why some people succeed and make their dreams come true, while others fail? It is, without doubt, there is a lack or involvement of divine intervention but others succeed because they set goals and try their best to achieve those goals.
Arguably, one of the challenges that can discourage us and lower our confidence to succeed is bad habits. A lot of people possess bad habits in their lives that stop them from becoming the person they want to be in their lives. Fortunately, there are things people can do to start changing their bad habits such as getting very specific and plan what they want to achieve.
In the way of changing your bad habits, you should specify a bad habit that you want to stop. For example, you shouldn't say you are going to start reading scriptures, but you should clarify how many times you should read per week, and how long you should spend reading the scriptures.

Since then up to now, I have managed to quit alcohol. Having solutions to the challenges that you will face during the process of stopping your bad habit will help you to win the bad habit that has colonized you.
