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 #10 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.

# 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 # 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, unmistakably, and unquestionably be broken, include getting “Healthy,” “Exercising,” and “Eating Right.” 

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