Back Story

Got a persistent cough? Are you smoking?

On your sixth relationship in two years? Do the partners you pick have to “sweep you off your feet” at first sight?

Can’t hold a job? Is a meal just not a meal without lots of wine to wash it down?

If you have chronic problems, the likelihood is they result from things you are doing persistently that are also misguided. Problems generally do not exist in a vacuum and do not start with their diagnoses. Examine your chronic habits now—whether related to eating, hygiene, or any other area of your life—and look for any connections to what consistently ails you. The only way to address a chronic problem is to break the chronic habit that supports it, thereby breaking the cycle.
