Change is hard for anyone, not just for people with ADD or ADHD. First, we have to make up our mind to change; the payoff has to be worth the effort to us (usually someone else wanting us to change is not enough).
I try to set reachable goals, expect lapses but just stick with it, keep score like with gold stars. So it’s identify a problem, commit to change, make a strategy, make a rule. If I stick with it long enough, it becomes a new habit.
To change an old habit is hard; the first strategy is spotting. Just notice every time you do it. That’s the first step.
