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.


I'm on you with this one.

I am serious about giving up the smokes, the last time I quit I considered it pretty easy, but this time I don't know so much.

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

Yes. Generally the start path to one of the highest paying IT jobs. After, Ill probably stop but if I get in the mood Ill go to the switching and routing CCNP and Ill probably stop there. CCIE is basically being god and I have no interest in that; I just want to get paid.

So, Neowin what's your new year's resolution?


Mine:
1. Work on my video game pile of shame.
2. Replace the 2 80mm fans in my secondary for 120's and 140's. (I know...)
3. Work out more and try to eat healthier.
4. Get a higher paying job that isn't dead end and fits my schedule.
5. Get my certs. (No Idea where to start, but i'd like to get my CompTIA and MCITP. Already aced my IC3 but that's easy stuff.)

want to know the trick to quitting smoking. Guaranteed every single time. I did it, smoked 12 yrs, when I quit I was at almost 2 packs a day.

Spoiler


There's the secret to quitting. I quit that way and I got 8 of my friends so far to also quit just by doing that.

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.


The fat girls with kids stopped when my drinking stopped. Maybe that's how you can kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

I know you were serious but that hit my funny bone. I know where you are coming from. Been there and done that.

Just to better myself. Same resolution i have every year.

Become more productive, looking at taking my business further and looking after my family.

Oh and drinking a shed load of booze and learning to drive (not at the same time i hasten to add :p )
