It is not a question of what is possible by willpower alone, but dependent on neurochemistry as well. To change a behaviour, one has to identify the problem and do something else. Since ADHD impairs the brain resulting in poor impulse control and a craving for stimulus, among others, it is extremely difficult to repeat the same task again and again, altering the response. Also, one must remember what happened the last time in order to change it in the future, and many people who suffer ADHD have problems associated with memory.
