The chapter provides an exclusive analogy of how habits are nurtured, and how one can work to break the bad habits. Hollis began drinking at a very young age but never realized that she was getting deeper, and deeper into excessive drinking. Most individuals tend to get into habits such as drinking just to cover up, or forget the problems they are facing, and in Hollis’s case, she began drinking a lot of wine as a result of the stress brought forth by the babies. She always felt tired, for instance, she had to wait half a day at MacDonald’s on Saturday, and this frustrated her making her develop the habit. On the other hand, Hollis is perceived as an individual who can persevere given the fact that she was able to break the drinking habit even though the process is painful, and demanding. For instance, the ability to resist temptation is one of the serious issues which she had to overcome during the process.
