Bitch on the Blog

Did you know that it takes 6 (SIX) weeks to break a habit? Yes, so did I.

Let’s leave aside the absolutely mind boggling question what you’d do during the six weeks other than break yourself, your resolve, your patience, your pride and anyone witnessing the miserable failure you are. The last being the reason why I never tell anyone anything. Thus you only disappoint yourself. All others are spared.

I keep postponing the moment to test the theory. I am spoilt for choice: Which habit of mine deserves to be broken? The whole endeavour hampered by realisation that I am not a creature of  habit but would love to give up something. Not least because there seems such virtue bestowed on those who give up. I myself would be better pleased if I’d manage to erect  rather than tear down.

Let me know. Food (for thought) parcels welcome.




  1. You can break a habit on the spot is you really, really, REALLY, R-E-A-L-L-Y don’t want to do it anymore. But you have to remind yourself that you really, REALLY, R-E-A-L-L-Y don’t want it.

    • Bike Hike Babe, I am sure you are right.

      Anyway,I saddled the horse of this post the wrong way. Am surprised Jean didn’t pick me up on the error of my ways. What I need to do is not so much relinquish habits (as I said I have few – other than attending to daily ablutions and feeding the young) but am in urgent need to ACQUIRE some GOOD, very good and useful, habits as soon as possible. And apparently, if you manage to force yourself (willpower such a fascinating concept) then, hey presto, six weeks later it will have become a habit. Let’s hope one you don’t later want to wean yourself off.

      Isn’t life fun? Kittens chasing their own tail couldn’t make you laugh more.
