New Years resolutions

Everybody does that at least one year in their life. And then fail to keep them! What are yours? Did you ever had a resolution that you actually kept?

Mine:

Try and cleanse my face day and night (except when im in a rush)
Use the stairs more (unless i have to go up)
Exersise (yeah right...)
Learn Dutch (been saying that for 3 years in a row now)

Re: New Years resolutions

To start drinking heavily, doing drugs and womanising, then I'll have something to give up in 2018.

Re: New Years resolutions

I need to stop f e c k ing swearing. Little Rufus is quite the mimic, as I discovered this week whilst queuing in Argos. I'll be buying Duplo elsewhere in future...

Interestingly the EF bad language filter also removes the f word with the e and the clothing brand variation.

Re: New Years resolutions

Back in the Summer I would have said "Spend less time online", but since the cluster headaches started I've been pretty quiet. Therefor, my resolution is to stop the damned headaches.

Re: New Years resolutions

To quit smoking!
After 18 years of heavy smoking, I've recently started vaping. Have been smoking like a pack a day (sometimes more) and now it's like 1-2 cigarettes a day.

I think your option would be easier to get actually.
You know they go on about not drinking alone but really there's always company here on EF

Re: New Years resolutions

My only resolution: no resolutions.

Has worked a treat for many decades.
