    Habit is a second nature.

    Hello!

    'Habit is a second nature' - we use this proverb very often in Ukraine or Russia.
    Can you suggest some proverbs or sayings which have the same meaning?

    Thank you very much!

    'I get up at 6.30 every day - even on Sundays. . .force of habit, I suppose.'

    'I still take my hat off when a funeral cortege passes; old habits die hard.'
