In many of the workshops/trainings I facilitate, one of the last activities has them identifying one thing they’d like to eliminate (typically, a bad habit) from their life. Once identified, I provide them worksheets to work on changing it over the course of a week or – for the more ambitious – a month.
One of the excuses I hear is, “I don’t have the willpower to break it.” Although it starts with small steps, here’s a great read that supports the notion that willpower isn’t necessary to break bad habits; sometimes, it’s just about changing your emotions. Here’s the link:

P.S. Also use this to consider integrating a new habit in your life. Sometimes, adding a new habit eliminates one or two bad habits.
