New Years Resolutions and You

with one comment


The tradition of New Year’s Resolutions dates back to ancient Rome, when a mythical kind named Janus was placed at the head of the calender to look at both past and future events. These commitments and goals to make certain lifestyle changes are often set for the first day of the new year, and for many people, are frequently broken soon after.

The start of a New Year is always a good time to make some new resolutions for improving your life in the next year. Many often make resolutions for weight loss, improving closeness of their families, or for those in Recovery, not to fall back into old habits. Repairing old ties can be a common resolution of people who have completed recovery, but many often wonder “How can I stick to my resolutions this year?”.


Sticking to your resolutions can be difficult, but its important to remember WHY it is that you’ve made these resolutions. You want to better yourself and make this a year that is better than the previous ones. Giving up addictions cold-turkey like smoking, may not be your best bet. Try creating a calender and pick a random date, like the fourteenth of January. Begin cutting back on cigarette intake. If your prone to smoking a pack a day, try making it a pack every three day. Keeping an up-to-date calender with positive notes to yourself can be very helpful.

Celebrating your life in 2009 is crucial to your Recovery. Celebrate YOU and the successful steps you have completed.

  1. I am a firm believer in visualization. You can hear it or read it but it is only when you see it with your own eyes do you gain full understanding. Put 365 packs of cigarettes on a table, then unwrap them all and put the 7300 individual cigarettes on the table. I think you get the point.
