Changing negative behavior or bad habits to positive ones requires time and a basic general knowledge. Successful behavior change begins with adequate preparation and continues with a variety of strategies and techniques that we should be aware of to gradually alter thoughts and action.

It not only harms the body physically but also psychologically.
