Anyway, I don’t make resolutions on things I really need to do, I try to make them optional things that would improve my life. So I’m trying to get at least an hour of crafting in a week. Yeah, my stuff is crap, but it makes me happy.
Just got a copy of the book by April Winchell called Regretsy for Christmas. It’s a riot… and I highly recommend it. Wish the site was still up.
(fun fact, April is a voice actor and has been in several movies including Who Framed Roger Rabit, Despicable Me 2, and a ton of TV series.)
I vowed to give up Pepsi. That lasted 7 1/2 days. I broke. And after that sweet delicious bubbly goodness was devoured, I really felt like I was so close to getting over the top of the hill. Another couple days and I probably wouldn’t have the strong cravings anymore.
@ruouttaurmind soda is tough. It took about two weeks for my addiction to lessen. This was after I had spent a week cutting consumption in half. I just went cold turkey. After about a month I started to feel fine.
It’s been probably around 4 years since I quit drinking soda everyday. Occasionally I’ll have one here and there. It was probably an entire year without drinking any soda at all.
@RiotDemon This is a relatively recent habit for me which makes it all the more frustrating it’s such a challenge to beat. Only the last 5 or 6 years. Prior to that I was a strict water or unsweetened iced tea drinker. I will beat this. I had one can yesterday, now I’m back on the wagon for another try.
I don’t do resolutions, but I do usually give up things for Lent. I find the set end date makes it more manageable, while 40 days is still long enough that it might become a more permanent change. I quit soda this way.
@f00l “They” actually had a weather segment tonight on the local news talking about it. While the Southernly winds are great for our temps, we need the Northern air to get that shit out of out fine state.
