Every year I have someone, usually a relative ask me excitedly, "Hey, what you givin' up for the new year?"

Call me a crone but my answer most always, including this yr, is nothing. Yeah, then you get, "why aren't you giving up anything?" Of course my reply is, why?

Anyone feel like its your duty to give up something each new year? And tell me honestly now, how long does that really last?

LOL I am right there with you JP.  I plan on smoking, drinking, and making merry all year long and it will be a lot of drinking if it turns out the wife is pregnant again.

I never make resolutions any time of the year. Puts to much pressure on me to prove myself. I find that if I am truly serious about changing something, I just have to do it and not talk about it.

I'm just the opposite Annette..  I feel like if I'm seriously trying to change something about myself then I have to tell everyone that I can so that they can make sure I stick to it!  I'm going to try to cut way back on Mountain Dew this year, as in only have it on Saturday as opposed to starting out every day of the week with 44 oz of heaven!  The more folks I tell, the more people I have to get after me when I try to break the trend!

I don't change anything for New Years, frankly if I am doing something that makes me an a&* hole then I better not be waiting for a new year to change something that I or others don't like about me because thats not fair to anyone.
As far as giving up anything? That doesn't prove anything for me either, whats the point?
Again if you are doing something unhealthy you don't need the new year to make that change and if you do then you probably need more intervention than just the calendar changing.
New Year's resolutions hardly ever last because its more of a peer pressure thing to make that commitment to something, you have to want to change something on your own and if you did you would already have done it.
I live my life in a way that I am constantly striving for self improvement, self sufficiency and solidifying my family and trying to set good examples for my children and to raise them to have good values.
All of those require constant and consistent change as well as trying new things.
I just try to do no harm, mind my business, take care of my business and hope to leave the earth a better place. Not a saint, trying to not be a sinner but no new year's resolutions for me.

I think it was new years 1999 that I gave up resolutions.

For years I was able to keep my New Years resolution because I never made any, then, this year, I broke that resolution, under pressure from the wife, to attend church every Sunday.  So far I'm 100%, only 51 more to go.
