New Year's Resolutions Reviewed

Since New Year’s is coming soon, I thought I would review some of the most common resolutions so we could ALL get a clear prospective of what they’re   about. Hopefully, you will read my suggestions and take them for what they are worth…A complete load of ?@@(*^%!…

Losing Weight—This is one of the more popular resolutions along with joining a Gym, and becoming more health conscious. While these are ALL great to SAY you are going to do, each has only a 3% chance of being followed trough. Usually, the unfit STAY unfit because, well, let’s FACE it, it’s TOO much like WORK. Who the HELL wants to eat a donut and then have to work out for 6 hrs., trying to undo the calories it only took 5 minutes or less to eat? MY SUGGESTION:—Eat the Donut and to HELL with the workout, love yourself as you ARE and move on.

Quitting Smoking—I never got addicted so…Don’t care. If ya got ‘em, smoke ‘em, if ya wanna quit, patch up, and chew your way to being smoke free. P.S. if you DO decide to quit, please be PREPARED to gain at least 10-25 Lbs., and then NEXT January, use the above as your resolution.

Quit Drinking—-This is one that I would resolve to do EVERY New Year’s Eve. My “Good Intentions” usually only lasted until the day AFTER New Year’s. Sadly, I NEVER seemed to manage this one year after year. Hopefully, if this is YOUR intention, I wish you much luck and success. Cheers, I mean I’m WITH you on this one.

Lastly, Let me address All New Year’s resolutions, they are ALL MEANT as a good thing, the only PROBLEM is, we are Human Beings and as such, we are flawed.  DON’T beat yourselves up if you fall short, just do the best you can.

Remember, there is always NEXT YEAR!!!!!

Happy New Year Everyone…

    Don’t beat yourself up if you fall short… good advice. I quit drinking almost 17 months ago and it wasn’t for a new year’s resolution.

    Lost my weight & I now stay within 10# of my 185# target +/-, don’t smoke or drink enough for quitting to be a noticeable change except on vacation.

    No resolutions left. I’m working on a new business venture, but that’s more of a 5 year plan.

    I am going to try quit smoking that’s my big one for the year, if nothing else.

      I’m really enjoying vaping & you can step down your nicotine until you’re just satisfying an oral fixation.

        Haha let me tell you about oral fixations! Sorry, had to! Thanks for the tip I might give it a go, since nothing else is helping.

          I think the best idea is to start by trying to cut back to 2 packs a week while making up the difference vaping. Then go for 1 pack a week. You inhale more & worse commuting & you still get the deep satisfaction of one or two after dinner & the occasional just gotta have one or someone will die… cancer is after all marginally preferable to life in prison.

            YIKES! I smoke maybe four ciggys a day, I have been down to 1 but with uni coming up I want to end it all, my family has a thing for cancer, so I have a deal of motivation. I might go hunt down a vape do-dad today, thanks MM

              they you’re already doing far better than most smokers here.

              Down to three now, and I have to say I’m struggling to keep calm especially in this heat!
