    Off hand I can't think of any that lasted longer than the month of January.

    How's about you?

    No, but that is because I haven't made any.

    I stopped making them about two years ago. Decided to live each day by the moment.

    I find that I do better with getting things done, if its not set as a resolution.

    Im terrible at finishing anything i start, so a New Years resolution is a pointless exercise to me.

    I think I've made some before, but I tend to forget about them around a month later..

    My New Year's resolution every year is to do the best I possibly can. However one year I decided to quick smoking and train to run in the Honolulu marathon and I did it. However when I finished the race I stumbled into Long's Drug Store and bought a pack of cigarettes and went to a bar and got drunk.

    I've never made one and actually didn't know about them until I was in my mid-late teens.

    I made one over a decade ago and have stuck with it.

    It was "To never make any New Years resolutions ever again."

    Still stuck with it.

    Yup.

    I made a New Year's resolution that on my thirty-fifth birthday if was still smoking cigartettes I'd stop.

    On the eve of that birthday I threw my last pack of cigarettes into the fireplace and I've never looked back. I began smoking at twenty-one so it was roughly fourteen years I smoked.

    Only New Year's resolution I've ever made. I kept it and I'll say that it was not difficult to stop once I'd decided I was done with it.
