okay well I don't wait for New years to set myself straight with those nagging things we never get around to, so I started my resolutions today. No I didn't quit of these days..but I did start to exercise more.

When I went out for a smoke, I decided to go to the top floor (28th)and all the way back down , twice (while mindlessly chatting with a girl from Universal Records).

Then I remembered I had to press the button for MY floor and I went back up, but only half way up(and I was neither up nor down, badumdum)as I was getting tired at that point.

So, what are YOU gonna do for self improvement in 2006?

Thats sage advice

by AV . In reply to Stop smoking

I have to ask you why you did it on January 13 at midnight. Was it pre-planned or did you just know you were finally ready? I'm very close to quitting, but I can't seem to let go of that last cigarette.

Thanks so much for your thoughts. I'm definitely ready for some needed changes in my life. I love technology and have a great job, but its getting more demanding than I want. And the commute is getting longer.

Well, Old Guy, happy new year! Hope you have a good one.

January 13

by Old Guy In reply to Thats sage advice

The reason I remember the date is it was Friday the 13th. The reason I was able to stop is because that was one of the worse coughing spells I had. I really think my next step was emphysema. One of my docs told me don't come back until I quit smoking. I do think there was more to it though, because about two weeks later we were pregnant with my daughter. Looking back hence the beginning of my family and working with teens. (I think it was someone else's time table for me.) A lot of things changed at that time.

One thing that did help was the Nike ad--Just Do It. Whenever I wanted a smoke I would say Just Do It and then say no.

Good luck in quitting (smoking) and making a decision to listen more to your artistic side.

Hope you have a great New Year's Day and a fulfilling new year.

Why bother with the pretence?

by jardinier In reply to resolutions

Are you sick of making the same resolutions year after year and yet you never keep them? Here are some resolutions that you can actually accomplish! Enjoy! :-)

10. Read less.

9. I want to gain weight. Put on at least 30 pounds.

8. Stop exercising. Waste of time.

7. Watch more TV. I've been missing some good stuff.

6. Procrastinate more.

5. Drink. Drink some more.

4. Start being superstitious.

3. Spend less time at work.

2. Stop bringing lunch from home: I should eat out more.

and last but not least...

1. Take up a new habit: maybe smoking!
