  1. I will answer only the first question, the other two are worthy of a separate task. If (and I emphasize if) a person does nothing with his vices, then with age they can indeed be aggravated. I think that the main guilt must be assigned to experience. The older a person, the more experience he has, including the experience of interacting with himself, the experience of reflection, successful and unsuccessful attempts to develop, and fight the very vices. The experience has many positive aspects. This is self -confidence, and the development of intuition, and the expansion of the horizons. But the experience also limits. The acquisition of knowledge is irreversible, the acquisition of skills is reversible, but has the final rate of degradation. The older, the more experienced a person, the less flexibility he has to look at new opportunities with a fresh gaze, impartially. Experience is a stick about the two -edges, the larger it is, the harder and more convincing the stick, but the more difficult it is to freely wield it. Experience can create the illusion of predictability, control over the situation. Experience, having formed self -confidence, can pour into self -confidence. Experience in the absence of modesty can lead to pride and turn into confidence in the superiority of its position. All this does not help fight its vices. In addition, if you consider the vice as a rooted habit (for example, smoking), then the longer positive consolidation (receiving remuneration) occurs, the more difficult the habit of changing and the more it is to abandon it. A person who smokes a year is potentially easier to abandon smoking than a person who smokes half a century.

  3. You are mistaken. Moreover, vices are left. Of course, no one collected statistics. And a person living in his environment sees and feels but differently. Listen, I see that people have a complex character, yes. But it is precisely vices that becomes less. The reason is simple- wisdom that appears with revival.

  4. Houses unattended gradually destroyed. Also, the car has time negatively. But if you constantly repair and improve the design …. Peterhof is beautiful and restored retro cars are gorgeous. Similarly, human morality. If he works on his spirituality, then improvements are inevitable. For example, you can read the Bible and apply its advice: betray your way to the Lord and trust in it, and he will make,
    And he will lead, like the light, your truth and your justice, like noon. Psalus 36 and it is difficult for a person to deal with his vices alone. The world around us always strives to corrupt.

  5. The habit provokes. She takes time in time. This place could be occupied by another training, another habit in the end. Eat, you need to be able to eat – you also need to be able to. Moreover, these skills/ inability are intended. Not knowing how not to eat, you can’t learn to eat. Not to mention the “proper nutrition” – speaking of “there is a hunt” ..- When the “hunting” ends and it begins “it is better to crack the belly than to disappear” -?)) The perfection of skill or inability is achieved by training. One of the inevitable methods of the training process: repetition.

  6. And what vices are we talking about? Vice is a disgraceful property, a moral disadvantage. But this is just an evaluative characteristic, not an imperative. And with age, “strengthening of character” simply occurs, good ones become kinder, evil – angrier. Well, the question of “work on himself” implies that a person should not arrange something in his character. But why suddenly?

  7. Because vices are the development and consolidation of dependencies. The baby is born to a minimum infected with them, then develops, acquires new ones, constantly increasing the psychophysiological level. The consequences of this are such that in adulthood begins on this basis. In youth – fights, stabbing, risks at work, in everyday life, on average – cancer, heart, strokes, all these are consequences. There are those who learned to fight, coped or did not participate in this race for dubious pleasures. And, it is difficult because the mechanism of dependence is so arranged, it is easy to get hooked, it is difficult to overcome. Yes, some of them are not advertised as harmful, on the contrary, are advertised, used to pump money. If a person is not a professional, he will not understand until the end of his life, how and in what he was deceived.

  8. To begin with, the repetition of action is fixed in the brain as a habit. Some habits are fixed faster, some slower. It probably depends on more pleasure or on less complexity associated with the action that brings us an acceptable result. Further, any high -quality work is extremely difficult. If throughout life we ​​devoted enough time to develop habits to work highly, then, with an increase in skills, this difficulty has decreased for us. For example, a person who has spent years on a cool ability to play a musical instrument no longer needs to make the same amount of effort as before. The skill is already formed and does not cause much difficulties, like a beginner. But if you began to learn to work on yourself only now, it is obvious that the increased difficulty will be precisely because you are a beginner. Add to this a certain percentage of decrepitude from age. Here you have your “Why is it so difficult?” Views are an inability to achieve life goals with qualitative methods. Quality requires work on it. Quality is not given immediately easily. For good quality, the work of more than one generation is needed. High -quality education is the transfer of knowledge and skills from previous generations to subsequent. In order to well be able to work on yourself, you need this to be taught by those who have such a skill. Otherwise, you need more than one life to overcome all difficulties.

  9. In order not to overdo it, she specially looked at the meaning of the word “vice” in the explanatory dictionary of Ozhegov. And there are three meanings. Vice: 1. A heavy reprehensible drawback, a disgraceful property. For example: “False is a big vice” .2. Depraved behavior. For example: “Rush the vice” .3. Anomaly, deviation from a normal form, condition. For example: “Farms of speech.” “Frequencies of the heart.” “Frequent vices”. Prest is the time during which the vice can develop. Not always, in my opinion – for the second meaning, such an option is quite possible that the “fuel” in the form of health is no longer enough, and for the third – that some measures were taken to correct the vice (well, as in the case of a successful and timely time heart surgery). Well, the vice in the first sense, alas, is really improved over the years. But, perhaps, for all three meanings of the word “vice”, the assumption will be true that aggravation is provoked: habit, i.e. the formation of a sustainable behavioral stereotype; lack of counteraction and impunity (this is not the same); in some cases – the impossibility (and not “difficulty”) of the very work on yourself that you ask (for example: the use of substances, play, pro -wiring and etc.) – after all, work on himself suggests that a person a) understands that something is wrong with him; b) sincerely wants to get rid of it; c) has for this resource the coincidence of points a), b), c). ) – Unfortunately, not such a frequent phenomenon in our lives.

  10. Any vice is a way in which a person tries to satisfy his needs. But some methods are specially intended for this, and vices create only temporary visibility of satisfaction. For example, if a person wants to cheer himself up or feel his significance, then some people for this for this will achieve success in something, while others use sweet food. In the first case, a person will receive real satisfaction, if they achieve success. In the second case, such a habit of a person develops into gluttony and obesity. The strength of such a person in the joy of success remains unsatisfied, and therefore he is forced to increase the amount of food, believing that this will help him achieve the desired state. So vice day after day and draws a person into more and more problems, enhancing the manifestations of his destructive behavior.

  12. With age, the human brain ages, loses the ability to perform some functions, due to organic damage to tissues and areas of the brain responsible for the performance of its highest functions. The highest functions include, for example, the ability to deceive and maintain the details of “deceptions” in memory. Naturally, it is not possible to hide “vices” in this case, and they become more visible. At the same time, the personality may lose “learned”, “invented”, artificially supported positive features, to maintain the appearance of which the brain is no longer able to, he needs to cope with other tasks more important for survival. This is one of the options, a special case. There are many other factors affecting age -related personality changes, but they are different for each person

  13. Here, as one bike says, there are “two paths.” The first is if a person is a slave to sin and passions, then over the years the vices only progress and progress, and the person himself is fooling and fooling. And vice versa, if a person is a servant of God, then over the years he gets rid of vices. I often give a comparison of the human soul with a garden, or a field. Behind the garden you need to take care, work, cultivate, weed weeds. You should not build illusions for yourself that the marvelous fruits of virtues will grow on their own with age. If you do not work, only weeds will grow, you do not need to take care of them. It is enough to leave the garden without leaving, and they will grow themselves. And difficult because laziness, and just. On the usual field, you need to bend the back, tear it up. On the soul field, just in the soul, only bending and tearing off the back, but the soul. In the black body you need to keep your soul, bend it day and night. Then marvelous fruits will grow with age. I saw an weed of envy – pulled out. I saw a weed of greed – pulled out. The evil word heard – turned away, heard slander – he dismissed, saw his bare legs – he closed his eyes. Offended – forgiven, hit – thanked. And so all his life. Yes, it hurts, but on the field, too, the back and legs are sometimes taken away. If you want to eat potatoes, and not a tops from her, you will have to tolerate and work hard.

  16. With age, a person acquires his stereotypes of behavior, his code of rules, the character of a person is formed, who often can not be changed. And if young people are more flexible, more amenable to influence and training, then elderly people who have already ossified in their worldview, attitude to the life of the individual, who are based in their decisions on their own experience gained throughout life. And far from always this experience is positive. And if young people often hide their negative attitude to something, their negative thoughts and actions, then the elderly do not have this, they commit the actions that are considered true by definition, the prevailing “axiom” of behavior, and not everyone likes this behavior. And the so-called “vices” crawl out, since such people for the most part no longer have a desire to like it, they will get used to some kind of framework, there is no need to smooth out and hide something. But in fact, a person simply ceased to be “someone” with age, but became himself what he was.

  17. “My uncle of the most honest rules
    When not jokingly a pierced
    He made himself respect
    And it could not invent better.
    Its example is a science to others;
    But, my God, what a boredom
    With the patient to sit both day and night,
    Without leaving a step away! ”(Evgeny Onegin). On the invoice of vices is more often the most often found: these vices were before, but a person could hide them (for example at work). And why not hid at home and a person shows his true true face. They can and progress, if a person does not work on himself, does not change himself. It is not only difficult to work with himself, but almost impossible. “And you fought with sin to blood,” the apostle Paul speaks, the transformation of personality is possible only with God and in God. Without their own efforts, more precisely, in cooperation with God.
