Whether it's losing weight, to quit smoking, becoming a better person, or any number of things, every year, people will make those New Year's resolutions. I am guilty of it too. But, this year, I resolve to not make any at all. Here's why.

First and foremost, I strongly think that if someone wants to be healthier or to become a better person, they should do it at any time during the year and not wait until New Year's. If you want to kick the smoking habit, do it right now. You don't have to wait until the turn of the year to make that change.

I can't tell you how many times I've resolved to quit smoking, to lose weight, or to not be as lazy. I'll quit for a while, then end up going back to the same routine. It's called will power, and I have none at all.

Now, is that to say that I am doomed for the rest of my life? No, I don't think so. I think that if I truly wanted to quit smoking or make other changes, I would just do it.

I'm not saying I don't want to become a better person or to quit certain things I enjoy doing to be healthier. All I'm saying, is that if you want to do those things, why wait? Why make a huge deal out of it and tell the world that you're going to be different, only to fall off the wagon in a few weeks.

That said, there are people out there that will make their resolutions, and be able to stick to it. Good for them! I'm not knocking those people, I'm just not one of them. So, this year, I resolve not to resolve. And, I think I have a pretty good shot at not breaking my resolution.

Now, where's that cheesecake and my cigar.

Happy New Year!
