"This Time is Different"

I have a friend who has started a new course of healthful eating. She told me, “This time is different. I’ve struggled with my weight my whole life, I’ve been on a thousand diets, but this time I’m changing my eating habits for good.”

I'm reading (or trying to read) John Dewey's work on the very subject. So far I've gotten the point that habits are neither entirely internal nor entirely external, but rather an interaction between the two.

Like every wise thing I’ve ever learned, this seems obvious once you think about it but until you think about the subject in that way it’s mystifying.
