And where are all those resolutions? Dec 30, 2005

So many people said they have one - I'd be curious to know what they are !!!

For starters, here is mine: Although I always start working around 7 am, I am usually not showered and properly dressed until much later in the morning - this will change...

this time, it's for good Dec 30, 2005

I'm going to quit smoking in the new year.
I haven't made resolutions in years, just didn't see the point, but this time I'm using it as an excuse/incentive/motivation to finally kick off the habit for good.
In the meantime, I'm going to smoke my brains out while I still can!

No. Dec 30, 2005

I'm still trying to catch up with my past "New Year Resolutions" so I have decided that I'm not going to make any new ones until I'm done with the older ones.

The New Year starts everyday Dec 30, 2005

So, I make resolutions any day of the year (sometimes it works, sometimes not).

Any time, yes, but new year is convenient Dec 30, 2005

Sometimes it's helpful to use the New Year as a mnemonic device: "How long have you been taking proper care of your teeth and gums?" "Since January 1, 2006." But if you get a good idea to improve your life, don't wait till the New Year! Start now! For instance, I joined a gym on Nov 30.

I do better if I keep records. "Since January 1, 2006, I have been flossing twice a day." "Since November 30, 2005..." OR "For five weeks now I have been going to the gym three times a week."

I forgot to say that sometimes we need milestons in our lifes and a New Year is a good time to start.

No Dec 31, 2005

I just don't feel like quitting any of my bad habits :
I wake up late, I spend a whole lot of money on clothes & presents, I start a thousand things at a time that God knows when I manage to finish ... but I don't feel like changing, yet

In the New Year I'll try to keep things going.

hmm.. Is it that bad ?

Seems to be a common one Jan 1, 2006

Major one: Stop smoking. I managed this before, using those patches, and it was no great ordeal. I stayed "clean" for six years. The cause for the return was a one-off stressful situation, the reason for not stopping again was just force of habit and stupidity. Give it a whirl, guys.

Minor one: Stop making an ass of myself at Powwows by getting uproariously drunk and trying to flirt with charming young ladies.

(Here's lookin' at you, honey).

A great New Year to all!
