Confirm or deny


Do you believe that if you have to make something a New Year's resolution, you were never serious about it in the first place? The idea that if you really wanted something to change, you wouldn't wait for an arbitrary moment to do so.

Yeah I kind of agree with this. If you really want to stop smoking/drinking/eating junk because you have identified it is bad for you then do it today.

If you're going to continue doing something you know is bad for you and wait for a "better" time to quit then you probably don't have the mentality to succeed.

I suspect it's just a convenient time to evaluate your life and think about what you'd like to do differently.

It doesn't mean they couldn't have followed through on it if they had tried at a different time.

no one ever follows through on it though, no one ever even thinks about it past january

if they don't follow through on it when there is a supposed legitimate time of the year to do so, why would you assume there's a chance of anyone following through on it at any other point in the year?

My new years resolution 2 years ago was to quit smoking and I did. I was trying to quit for months before with no luck and I used New Years and the week coming up to it as a way to focus and get in the right mentality to quit.
