BEAT YOUR BAD HABITS

(Men's Health) Zero tolerance is the only way to break a bad habit. Here's how:

Wear a rubber band
When you feel a craving coming on snap your wrist three times quickly. Scientists and torturers call this negative reinforcement: Craving equals pain. It's akin to smacking yourself in the nose with a newspaper.

Pour yourself a glass of cure
When it comes to nervous habits, water is your secret weapon. When you feel a craving coming on, chug at least 10 ounces of water. It's amazing how well this works.


Switch sides of the bed
If you're a consistent habit former, you should overhaul your routines; what time you wake up, what you eat for breakfast, what route you take to work, and so on every three months.
