Overdoing something in order to get bored and to quit the habit is a high risk zone to get into. Even with all your alertness, the vaasanaa-s drag you into it. Someday you'll realize that you're trapped and way far from you goal of quitting the habit. Instead, the habit starts eating you then! It becomes the corpus callosum or substratum around which your life gets built.

Best way is to give up the acts, altogether, outright. Not only one habit, leave a couple other things with it. eg, to quit drinking liquor, quit tea and coffee too! It will have a greater impact of overall improvisation then.

Funnily, the mind's strength in avoiding things is measured by the mind; it is downright foolish to trust its assertions!
