    to get used to

    Hello teachers,

    could you help me with this?

    I am trying to get used to the usage of "to get used to" and "to accostumate":

    Could I say:

    I am accostumated to have nothing for breakfast.
    I get used to have orange juice for breakfast every monday.
    I am trying to make my son to be/get used to eat vegetables every day.
    I am trying to make my son accostumated to do his best when he plays soccer.
    I am trying to get myself accostumated to practice sports every day.

    Thanks in advance
