I would make the following changes. Should you give up your bad habits? (If you are asking a question.) If you are making a statement, I would say, "Give up YOUR bad habits". You could also say, "Bad habits were given up in favour of good ones". HE (or SHE) gave up a cookie in favour of THE candies. (This sentence sounds more natural with a pronoun) Sara HAS given up to her dream. (Past tense) He has not given up on HIS health. I WON'T give up on you! (This is a common expression) Hope this helps

The only two sentences with mistakes are these: 1.) A cookie is given up in favor of candies. :) Since "cookie" and "candies" are both sweets, it is strange to use the phrase "give up" here. 2.) Sara was given up to her Dream. Should be "Sara gave up her dream."
