repeating the past repeating the past repeating the past . . . when does it end?

People who have done certain things . . . are obviously capable of doing those things. But if they have sought forgiveness, found peace and moved on - are they still capable of doing those things? Are they more or less apt to repeat past mistakes? Once the sweet flesh of the apple has been tasted (and even if a piece lodged itself in the throat) will the sweetness be temptation enough to taste again?
Cheating or lying, stealing or betraying, philandering or partying, adultery or murder . . . whatever the sin - will it happen again?
