This situation arises because your hurtful habit is controlled by the subconscious part of your mind, and the subconscious is not as easily communicated with as is the conscious mind.

the hurtful habit is no longer needed as a coping mechanism because there are other choices. Once your subconscious understands and accepts this information, it cannot ignore it.
