-Angie could't help smiling when Oscar brought her the breakfast
-I can't help going to the movies.
Some people have explained it to me, but I never fully understood it.
Doll:Here is my try:
If you can't help doing something, you do it in the end despite all your attempts .
If you can't help doing something, it means that you can't resist doing it.
e.g. I can't help falling in love with you. I can't resist it . You have charmed me, and now I'm falling in love with you.
Here's my explanation:Please use plain black fonts. These garish colors should be reserved for special effects only. Thanks so much! (My eyes will thank you as well!)
Plz correct my sentence if there is something wrong,
