Do you make them, and if so what are they for 2022.?

I must confess that i don't usually, although this year I do have one, having not smoked for 8 months now my resolution is that in 12 months time that will be 20 month, so I guess I do have one  B)

    Quite a basic one, but I’m going to ensure I drink more water throughout the day.

    Not something I do.

    I always think the best time to start something is right now - I think choosing a date in the future is kind of putting it off needlessly. An example is when people say they are going to go on a diet “after tonight” or “next week” or whatever - IMO stop putting it off and do it now.

    That said I have a couple of goals, not for new year just things I’ve thought of: be more independent; and be more assertive (but still polite) with medical professionals to get the help I need - don’t let them say “see you in 3 months” unless there is something in place for me to work on in those 3 months!

    I tried giving up smoking a few times when I was young on New Year’s Day but failed every time. I finally gave up thanks to stoptober the nhs initiative. Brilliant actually, I had free lozenges and patches for a while and that was about five or six years ago now I think. I had smoked a lot since I was fifteen though I had the odd one at nine years of age. 

    Id highly recommend using patches and lozenges, they take the edge off marvellously and make what seemed impossible for me possible. Well done nhs and the taxpayer! 🙂

    Happy new year 🥳

    Happy new year to all. My new year's resolution is to concentrate more on myself for a change,not stress about things I cannot control.
