It takes a specific amount of time to develop a habit but nothing mentioned to leave a habit.Various research and studies have been carried which tells us that it takes 21 days to develop or inculcate a habit but there is no specific time frame mentioned when one wants to leave a habit.
If we continue to do a particular thing regularly for 21 days, then that thing or work will become our habit or part of our routine but the same does not apply to leaving any habit we are used to. For example, I am in habit of drinking tea in the morning and evening without fail and have tried to limit it to one time but have failed every time.
I used to think that the same time frame will be applicable to leave a habit as it takes to form a habit, but that's not true. What experience members have regarding leaving a habit?
