I never really do the whole new years resolution thing. I don’t really like new years eve at all if I’m honest although this year was a pretty good one. Mainly because I didn’t get so drunk that new years day hit me like a battering ram to the face this time, which made nice change. The list below is a by no means definitive account of my new years resolutions and my guess as to how long they will last.
Wish me luck!
1. Give Up Smoking
Well I haven’t smoked yet today. That’s not unusual for me after a night on the town, though. I’ll give it until 5th January at which point I will become unbearable company and will light up to save myself from being murdered by somebody. If only cigarettes weren’t so damned moreish.
2. Drink Less
I love a drink as those of you who read this will undoubtedly know, but I’m sure a little less wouldn’t do me any harm, if only to save money. This one will last until February when I celebrate my birthday in the only way I know how, on a night out so awesome that it will erase itself from my memory entirely.
3. Go Somewhere New
Anywhere I haven’t been before. Somewhere exotic would be wonderful, but equally there are parts of my own country that I haven’t set foot in yet. In the case of Birmingham and Leeds I would like to keep it that way. I think I should be able to keep this one.
So those are my three new years resolutions and that’s enough writing for today. I’m off for a whiskey and a cigarette.
