if you are having this this habit since many years, then suddenly quitting it is not a good idea. it will hamper your mental peace & balance, you get depressed at times or become very restless.
so first slowly try reducing the no. of pan you eat everyday.
for eg. if you eat 3-4 pan per day then for a month make it 2, then next month make it 1, then after few months make it 1 alternative days, then later on cut down to 1 pan in 2 or 3 days. like this slowly quitting the habit will help you for long term rather than suddenly quitting.
