OK. People make them, then within January, we break them. But it's nice to pretend we are actualy going to change, right? :p

Seriously. My resolution is to quit smoking...again. I gave up for 12 months, but then, like an idiot, I took it back up about 8 months ago. Giving up isn't something I am just randomly going to attempt. I have been cutting down on my smoking for about a month, and I am pretty confident I can quit and avoid the traps which tripped me up before. (If there are an ex-smokers reading this, any advice would be welcome :) )

I also want to do more exercise. Exercise will be a positive distraction from smoking in the first few weeks of quitting, and also help me lose a few of those kilos I put on over the Xmas break :p

Does anyone have any else have resolutions they'd like to share?

Good luck, I wish the best for you and I hope you can quit smoking for sure! :) Anyway, my resolutions for the new year are to start exercising more and watching what I eat. I'm always carefree when it comes to food--if I like it, I'll eat it. I have a high metabolism, so I don't really have to worry too much about my weight, and I'm pretty thin as it is. But it's always important to eat healthy, I wouldn't want to end up having diabetes or anything in a couple of years.

I started mine back the 1st of May, I've dropped 65lbs. Last few months I've start to slack on workouts, healthy eating. So mine is to get back in the swing of things again. I have another 20 lbs that I want to drop.

I assume that is Cisco Certified Network Associate? I had to google it. Cool. Hope you can obtain that.

600. Wow. Fiction? Non- Fiction? I'd like to do a little more reading too.

Do you already have programming experience? Why did you choose those languages?

My New Years Resolution: No more shots, and less hard liquor (I'll still be partial to the occasional Vodka Tonic). Also, exercise. I want to work out my upper body a bit more. I'm pretty sure there was a third one (we were having this discussion in the pub last night) but it's escaped me for the moment.

600 books wow. but as for languages that's where Im at too. I started C++ and C# this year but a lot of distractions maybe ill finish learning them and maybe get my Microsoft professional developer certification for C#.

Eat healthier. Try and be more relaxed and less tense, and not give in/forgive peoples decisions that I don't agree with. Basically just be overall stronger and stand my ground a lot more on issues/decisions that I don't agree with.

1 non-fiction (steve jobs biography) the rest were Fantasy, and Science fiction. My wife and I both have a Nook and we read throughout the day we have always both been big readers, and both have several friends that are published authors.

I do have a lot of programming knowledge, I mostly program in PHP these days, I chose Java so that I could do more Android Programming, and Python because i can make more rich web apps with it.

Find myself a steady job.
Get my drivers license back after paying off $1200-$1400 in fines.
Stop dating fat girls with kids and find myself a mature, petite lady.
Eat healthier.
Done with alcohol and smoking weed, just isn't for me.

That's about it I guess for now.
