New Year’s Resolutions


I’ve never understood the New Year’s Resolution thing. So much pressure we put on January first to lose weight, quit smoking, drink less or whatever it is that we tell ourselves we have to do on that date. New Year’s Day comes and we stop our old habits cold turkey. Aunt Mary stops by with her famous pecan pie; Uncle Joe brings a bottle of wine. You eat another feast, because it’s a holiday, and you can’t refuse the pecan pie or the wine. Ten minutes later you are off to the convenience store to buy a pack of smokes. By nightfall the guilt sets in and you eat everything in sight and smoke twice as many cigarettes as you did before. So you try again the next day, and the next day, beating yourself up every time you cheat. Why do we set ourselves up for depression!? I say, quit whatever it is when you’re ready, take a little pressure off!
