KICK EXPRESSIONS-1: meaning and examples

Hello again everyone.

As I mentioned yesterday, this week we will look at some common English expressions that use the word kick in them.

Today's first expression is: to kick the habit

Meaning: to stop doing something that is harmful, and which you have been doing for a long time (such as using drugs or alcohol).

Example 1
He had been smoking for 30 years, and then he kicked the habit. I am very happy for him!

Example 2
I'm sure that if she could kick her drug habit, she would stay out of prison.

Today's second expression is: to kick back (especially in US English) informal

Meaning: to relax

Example 3
Please just kick back and enjoy the flight.
