“So, to make sure I understand you correctly, you think it is impossible for a person to make a decision that avoids negative consequences of doing X , given he enjoys doing X, unless he had experienced negative consequences of using X” No. Because we were not talking about X. This is why I said you did not give a good example for X.

It is frustrating talking to people who have trouble formulating good questions. I persist because I believe everybody can learn. I am always learning and I extend that courtesy to others.

I’m glad you have an experience where you stopped smoking and you stopped for a reason that confirms your question in a way that my experiences did not.
Do you lack other examples whereby reason is superior to emotion or is this the only one available to you?
I’m willing to entertain other examples. You’re probably bored and want to stop now though.
