You can certainly use lucid dreaming as a kind of therapy. But first you will have to learn how to induce lucid dreams and then manage them. The degree of control will grow with time and practice. Here is a link to get started:


In the meantime, rather than seeking escapism from the real world, why not face what bothers you. I am pretty sure that your mind will emerge stronger from such exercise. You will find peace when you learn to accept that, in reality, we are never really in control of anything.

If you don't mind me asking, what is your old habit? Whatever the problem, you may derive something useful from this video:

"Empty cognizance of one taste, suffused with knowing, is your unmistaken nature, the uncontrived original state. when not altering what is, allow it to be as it is, and the awakened state is right now spontaneously present."
