If you have control over your behavior then it can be considered as a habit. Thus, it is not a disease and can be cured. How can we eliminate bad habit and totally get rid of it?

However, smoking is mostly associated with lung cancer, one of the leading cause of death worldwide.

 HOW TO KICK IT OUT?

Enough with all those dramas! Learn to appreciate privacy and respect yourself more by being exclusive. Use social media as your freedom wall of sharing goodness and inspiration and not as a diary-of-your-so-called-imperfect-life. Never stress your readers and followers. Your problem is yours alone and maintain your life’s privacy as much as possible.

Whatever habits you have whether a vice or a virtue, let the latter prevail and never allow the former to ruin your life! REMEMBER: BAD HABITS ARE PREVENTABLE!
