When i first started meditation. I learned by visualization technique,
Which i find it unsuitable. I explored next with breathing technique meditation,
which is pretty good but not my cup of tea. I tried prayers and sound technique' again i feel something is missing until i learned heart and inner heart meditation. The technique make me feel grounded with little effort and trying in the beginning stage. It is ok to try different technique that suited you most and feeling comfortably connected when you are in meditative state. What good technique for one can be on the opposite side for you.
Best wishes in your journey

Some one else covered the specifics of Vipassana.

As a general case, the biggest key is constancy. More time meditating will see faster progress. The temptation is to squeeze in as much meditation time as possible. Counter intuitively its better to spend less overall time on a regular basis. One of the biggest reasons is that blocking out time on a schedule lets you and everyone know this is a priority.

Balancing meditation time with life demands is one of the biggest problems. Consistent meditation will lesson those demands allowing more time for more meditation. Eventually you will be able to meditate while doing daily things and the blocking out time and scheduling will become moot.

There are some 'advanced' states that require large blocks of physical time (may seem way shorter in the experience). This might require special extended sessions.

Do you think meditation can break with very very deep and old patterns? Like food addiction or not dealing correctly with day to day unselting experiences like anxiety ?

My pointer for you.
Just keep at it for now. Relax,smile and melt within.
The chattering from thoughts will arise. Through awareness
those are just passing clouds covering the sky(pure consciousness).
As the expansion within grows and unite with Source as one.
Not only your challenge with food addiction can be put to rest.
The emotional negative layers that have been accumulated throughout our
lives can be cleanse gradually,layer by layers. The healing power are just beyond words.
Keep at it and wishing you beautiful growth within the love and light from
True Source.
Just a note to remind me as well. While meditating, be a blank book.

Very deep old patterns can be 'broken' (more accurately released as not being part of you) by deep meditation. As such, for most people that is going to take a long time (more than a decade). So yes, it is one of the benefits of meditation. However, its probably not the best tool for the job.

Note that not all addictions based on 'old' or 'deep' patterns. Addictions can arise as a maladapted response to severe trauma. Trauma, of course, can happen at any age.

Anxiety can also be addressed by meditation. The good news is that progress towards that end comes fairly rapidly for most people (starts in just few weeks or months). One of the first noticeable affects of meditation is more calmness.

I spoke to someone who worked on the cruise over a year ago. He was a young man and was a meditation teacher. He said meditation cured his gambling addition. He no longer gambled.
