“Habit if not resisted,
soon becomes necessity”
~ Augustine of Hippo
These super duper filter coffee sachets even travel with me. What hope do I have?
Weekly Photo Challenge – Habit
and how does one resist a habit? Does Hippo have an answer? 😉
I very much doubt the virtuous gentleman even had any (bad) habits to begin with!!
Haha, his answer was probably “Jesus”.
😀 are you a blogger Brandy? Your Gravatar does not link to any blog.
Yes, I am. I guess I will have to fix that. My blog is called The Sunday Post.
Oh, how boring it would be to have no bad habits!
Insufferably boring Sue! 😀
I’m addicted to coffee!
Good to know I am not alone Cardinal!
…often travels with you, that’s necessity 🙂
He he, I knew it was too late for me Amy 🙂
i can’t start my day without a cup of coffee, good photo, depicts my habit too 🙂
Only I wish I could stop with that morning cup! Thanks for stopping by Dhriti 🙂
OMG….where can I find one of these????? There are some hotels we’ve stayed at that don’t have coffee in the room and I either go through DTs until I can get downstairs in the morning, or my poor husband has to make a coffee run to bring some back to the room. (Those hotels would be mostly in Vegas where they want you out of your room to lure you back to the casino)
A coffee chain called Coffee Day makes these sachets here in India Angeline. Our son in law works for them, and I got hooked on when he sent us a Diwali hamper that included this a few years ago. A Godsend while traveling. I detest the instant coffee sachets provided in hotel rooms.
I take tea with me, often making my own tea bags with my loose tea. 🙂 Good habit.
Certainly better than too much coffee 🙂 I used to be a tea drinker, wife of tea planter and all! But I got addicted to coffee when I started working in an architecture firm. Discussions around the (crappy) coffee machine was de rigueur.
Wife of a tea planter? I should come visit you. 🙂
I forgot to say ‘ex’ 🙂 We left three decades ago!!
they look very sophisticated Madhu, good for you! I take my herbal tea bags, but husband has his coffee …. sadly for me a pleasure my body no longer enjoys 🙂
The ease of use is their main attraction Christine. Have been trying to switch to herbal teas with no success.
my body seems to make these decisions for me … allergic to red meat, dairy, oversensitive to stimulants, luckily I can still eat dark chocolate and I can still drink red wine!
Oh, I like your habit! (mine too!) 🙂
Like I said, good to know I am not alone 🙂
Love it! The coffee and the post. Coffee immediately came to mind for me, too, when I saw the theme “habit.”
Not that I don’t have others, but they are not all photo worthy 😀 Thanks Juliann
ooo I’ve never seen those – how cute and convenient!
So convenient Gilly. And minimum washing up, which is the most important thing 🙂
Coffee filter – hmmmm.
I often have a flask of hot tea with me – even when in Singapore!
Probably a better idea. That is a common sight in China Eric. They keep replenishing the hot water!

good habit to keep charged up 😀
But bad for my body I am sure Amar. I notice you don’t have any bad habits 🙂
i am smart enough to hide them 😛 bad and good are siblings. how can i leave them 😛 😛 😛
If coffee were my only vice, I would be a saint. 🙂
You made me laugh out loud Judy 😀 So are you going to tell us about your, er habits?
Just wanted to give you a chuckle, Madhu. Grammys don’t have bad habits. 🙂
I second that! 😀
i like this habit of yours, and i love your machine. how cool is that! whoever discovered that coffee makes a great beverage is a hero.
no need to break this habit 🙂
I know. Cannot imagine a world without coffee 🙂
Haha this totally resonates for me too. I swear we spent 30% of our trip around the world just searching out good coffee and good coffee shops! We finally resorted to buying our own beans and a traveling filter and carrying them in our backpack from destination to destination. I think we have issues. 😉
Count me in the ‘we’! Hubby isn’t too picky, but I absolutely need to start the day with good coffee or I know the day’s itinerary will not go well 😀 Delighted to ‘meet’ you Shelley.
My addiction was so strong, that I swept the hubby right along into it. Heh Heh. He totally blames me for his current coffee addiction!! 🙂

Traveling with coffee,I see more coffee in your future.
You’d like that,won’t you?
No hope for you at all, Madhu. 🙂 If you’re going to drink coffee, it may as well be an excellent one.
That’s a great thought to ponder.
Anyhow… I do really love my first cup of morning coffee!
During the day I try to drink coffee substitute which is much less side effects…
Wish you a lovely sunday :-)c
Love this! Coffee is the answer to nearly every question.
LOL Madhu – I’m with you on this habit! Nothing worse than a lousy cup of much-anticipated morning elixir!!! BTW, where is your header shot from? I just posted about Zhouzhuang and it looks very similar but the boats look different.
Once again Madhu my dear you are a woman after my own heart. Travel coffee sachets, I need to get myself some I think! 🙂

There are certainly much worse habits to have Madhu. 🙂
‘hahaha’ – I just ignore my habits – if I hadn’t have them, so other have no fun – and if people have fun about my habits – so it can’t be bad habits – isn’t it right..? “hahaha”
You’re almost like me –
almost a quarter of my travel luggage is my coffee “backpack”… 😉 😉
I often travel with my own tea bags. So I’m obviously a fan of habit!
I can understand your dislike for instant coffee. But I don’t think that all habits are bad, and for me, coffee is a matter of taste… and has a few extra advantages.
I agree anything in moderation can’t be bad. I was referring to the numerous extra cups I indulge in. A pleasure to see you here Shimon 🙂
I too need my cup of Joe and I want it the way I have it every morning at home. So, like you, I bring my stuff with me wherever I go. We are becoming creatures of habit (or necessity) as we get older, huh? I think it’s also the ritual that goes with it that matters.

Some habits are just not meant to be kicked. 😉
Certainly not these! Have managed to bring my consumption down to three cups for now 😀
Oh, I’m very impressed with that little gadget. I do like a well-made cup of coffee.
The ease of use of this ‘gadget’ is the reason I have one too many cups per day! Thank you Vicky. Happy to ‘meet’ you 🙂
You are one of the most hopeful people I have read!
Ha, am I? Not where it concerns my coffee addiction, or the state of politics in my country 😀
I understand but overall you truly are !
