What happen when you know you should refrain from eating sweet things but you still end up eating?
Your conscious mind, being logical, knows what to do but end up defeated by the subconscious mind. Which mind, then, is stronger?
The subconscious is more powerful than the conscious mind. But as human being, we are given the conscious mind to exercise control over the subconscious mind. By conscious control, I do not mean only to deliberately resist and fight the habitual pattern, You probably know this usually don’t give you much success.
Consciously think of a way to break habitual pattern, such as seeking help from hypnotherapist. This is conscious control.
