Does anyone know any techniques for creating new habits.
I find it fraustrating that the habits I do have and don't want, are hard to break, and the habits I want are hard to establish.

Even something simple like : "Drink a glass of water everytime I put the kettle on" or "go to bed at a reasonable hour" seems to start out well but then some time later, I realise I'm not doing it any more.
I usually don't remember the point I stopped doing something.
Perhaps identifying an approaching failure state is the trick.
