Every year, you make a New Year’s Resolution and every year without fail, you break that resolution.  It’s really only a matter of time on how fast you cave and see your resolutions fizzle.  “TIME” Magazine has compiled a list of the Top Ten New Year’s Resolutions that will be Broken, Compromised and Ignored in the coming year.


* Drinking less makes the number ten spot – typically broken within seconds of the new year!  At the STroke of Midnight, the first toast to the new year drowns out that pesky resolution of drinking less.

* Number 9 is “Quit Smoking.”  Nine times out of ten, a smoker will take a puff of their favorite cancer stick within a week of tossing the pack on December 31.

* These resolutions never seem to ADD UP!  “Save Money” and “Get Out Of Debt” makes numbers 7 and 8 on the Top Ten Flops!

* One resolution usually stresses people out the most – “Avoiding Stress” ranks number 6 on the List.

* “Spend More Time With Friends and Family” rounds out the Top 5. Busy lives and crazy work schedules put a damper on family fun.

* And numbers 4, 3 and 2, resolutions that will undoubtedly be broken, include getting “Healthy,” “Exercising,” and “Eating Right.” 

* Not to be confused with the be all-end all Number 1 resolution that will not be kept – “Losing Weight!”
