Self control has to do with your mind and how to react when you’re in a position or situation. When does self control come in when you go to smoke a cigarette because you’re stressed? Or when you’re in Atlantic City gambling and you want to roll the dice “one more time” to reach that extra hundred bucks lying on the table? When does self control come into play to solve these issues?
Self control can be very risk-taking. Everyone knows what smoking can do to you and how bad it is, it’s like a slow death upon their self. In the article, Science of Willpower, that I found interesting searching the internet, Kelly McGonigal gives examples of ways to help people give up smoking.
