A New Year approaches! This means that before the night is through, you’re supposed to determine some change of course – preferably one for the better – that you’ll have every intention of sticking with but will likely abandon by February. A handful of you might be of the fortunate mindset that allows for relatively easy implementation of changes, probably due to some hard-fought wrangling with your ego. These will-warriors may be so in control of themselves that any resolution made tonight would be indistinguishable from the one they made on June 27th.

I’ve just returned from CVS with a box of nicotine patches. I’ve got four cigarettes left in my last pack ever – four is my lucky number. I plan to enjoy the six-pack I’ve picked up, not-particularly-enjoy my final cancer sticks, and then get to bed early so I can wake up to a New Year!
