    Neither works in this unnatural sentence. What do you mean by 'very morning'?

    Re: since or from

    8 am
    I was trying to use construction similar to "from the very begining". I heard this a few times.

    "It is a bad habit to drink alcohol from early morning."
    Is it better?

    It's clear. We'd be more likely to say "It's a bad habit to begin drinking in the early morning".
