Oh, I'm sorry to ruin your buzz. To speak more positively, I think that New Years Resolutions are not an effective avenue for long lasting and sustained change. The reason I think that is because a ball dropping is not a strong motivation for change, in fact it is more fleeting than other forms. What is it good for? I would argue that a New Year really helps people put into perspective their failures and things they wish they could work on. That level of introspection comes around once, maybe twice, a year. For that, I do find some value in New Years Resolutions. On the second thing you said, no, I am not the type to go into a church and break shit. Frankly, I don't give a fuck what you believe. If going into a church and learning the good word gives you a purpose, or fills any kind of hole in your spirt than that is great.
