There is evidence that once certain neuronal pathways are created and a 'habit' is formed, it is in fact much easier to follow that habit. By that logic, yes, resisting certain urges should become easier if you have been following a good habit formation program. So you need to know whether what you are doing right now will work to form a habit.
