Chapter two is about how one can honour promises he/she makes to himself/herself, thus being able to stop a habit, and start a new one. The chapter begins by stating the second lie that Hollis believed, that is, ‘I will start tomorrow’. She proceeds to gives examples, and scenarios (of both herself, and her friends) of struggles with keeping one’s own promise, as a result of believing the lie. For example, she narrates how she started, and failed to continue with several programs including plans to attend gym, marathon, and walking to work (Hollis, 2018). Like Hollis, many women also start such plans with good intentions but find it difficult to continue because they find it normal to dishonour the promises they make to themselves. While one may want to honour the promises they make to themselves, they find the urge to break the promises irresistible. The distractions in life are among the factors that induce the urge of reverting to old habit thus abandoning a promise such as never to take diet coke again. Hollis (2018) gives an example of a woman who promises herself not to take a certain meal but goes ahead to take it on her child’s birthday. The child’s birthday, therefore, becomes the distraction.
