Having a healthy and long life depends, to a large degree, on recognizing how an unhealthy choice in the moment will impact you not only in the next few hours, but in the future as well, and creating a new habit.

- Decide you have a choice and will execute it
- Take responsibility for you health
- Recognize your actions have an impact
