LBD's Sure-Fire Universal Pseudo-Logarithmic Habit Implementation Scheme for Those with Minimal Will Power:
Step 1. Perform action A X times per time increment B, for X number of Bs.
Step 2. Increase the value of X by 1 and repeat step 1.
Step 3. Repeat step 2 as necessary.
Notes:
A - the action (or omission) that you are having trouble developing into (or dropping as) a regular habit should be specifically defined (examples: "do not eat sweets" or "brush teeth before bed").

B - the time increment (i.e., one week, one month, etc.) should stay constant for the duration of the scheme.

X - a starting value of 1 works best.
In other news, I hit the gym last night.

hmmm, i think stopping. though i like the feeling of an over-inflated ego but it's impacting my work and personal relationships.

i had to ask as i feel i have the will-power, just not the motivation. Can you help me Doc?

I can't help with motivation. You kinda have to care about making a change in order to actually make a change. For example, if the prospect of weeping friendlessly in a cave while unemployed appeals to you, then you might be out of luck here.
