Why is it that i do the same things and expect different results?

That's the definition of insanity. Don't worry, we all do it. A lot of what we do is from habit and a habit is one of the hardest things to change. If you know you are going to repeat what is probably a bad behavior, think before you do it and make a choice not to. Be aware of what you are doing and change it. You have to be honest with yourself, but after a while, you do it without thinking and you will realize that you have changed your behavior and are not making the same mistake over and over.
