What Happened to Your 2012 New Year's Resolution?

  1. I kept it - and I'm proud of it.

  2. It lasted for a while but gave up during the year.

    25.0%
  3. It lasted a matter of minutes into 2012, and the term willpower is not in my lexicon.

    25.0%
  4. Why would I make a resolution knowing full well I would never ever keep it anyway?

    30 some years of making resolutions and not keeping them. Why would I want to break the tradition?

    Don't think I made any last year.

    I've really only kept one resolution in my life anyway.

    I do have one for tomorrow, however.

    Cha Ching. Good job. :)
    Yeah - I already blew mine too...sleeping in beyond 6am one morning. :D
    Why not? It's for fun, not the Spanish Inquisition.
    Well that certainly would be taking a safe route. :grin:
    Bingo...we have a winner! :lol:

    It seems long-term willpower (for a year) is not a common trait among DBSTalkers in this poll so far, me included. :eek2:

    Didn't gamble at all for the second straight year. Didn't drink alcoholic beverages for the 13th straight year (I sure would like a cold beer!).

    The gambling was easy to stop. So was the drinking (I sure would like a cold beer!).... :lol:

    Oops, almost forgot. Didn't smoke a tobacco product for the 49th consecutive year.

    How's that for willpower?
