Look up “how long does it take to change a habit” on Google and you’ll see, in boldface, at the center of the screen:
But, experts say that there really is no such magic number when it comes to changing habits.
A study conducted by researchers from University College, London in 2009 shows that this is far from the truth. When researchers examined how long the newly formed habits of 96 people too to develop, they discovered that the average was actually 66 days. In fact, individual results varied from between 18 to 254 days.

I know that it may be strenuous on your part, and it would be really hard to reform your habits, but you will never get to Day 254 if you are not to start on Day 1! You will never see a better version of yourself if you are not going to start the process.
