If you truly wish to change your bad habits, change the company you keep. Most important, pray to God to have you stop. Don't take credit for improving. Your repentance is a blessing from God. So is your ability to act on your feelings of repentance. And, if you want to be a good person, seek out good people. If you want to love God, stay with those who love God.
