Habits are defined as routines of behaviour that are repeated regularly, without consciously and directly thinking of them and usually they are unnoticed. Entangling in a habit is easy, but getting rid of it is a very difficult task; the older the habits, the more difficult to get free of them...especially after certain period of time, because of the adaptability of human beings they become part of us and remain with us unnoticed; Chekhov interestingly says that the living organism possesses the faculty of quickly adapting itself to every condition; if it were not so, man would be conscious every moment of the unreasonable foundations on which his reasonable actions rest and of how little of justice and assurance are to be found even in those activities which are fraught with so much responsibility and which are so appalling in their consequences, such as education,literature and the law.
