Another New Year

New Year Resolutions
“Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right.” (Oprah Winfrey)
How many of us have made our New Year Resolutions?
We promise to the world and to ourselves that there will be no more drinking, smoking, excessive food and we will go to the gym every day and lose weight …
Our determination often fails after such a short time. We justify our failures and we might state to our friends that the way to Heaven is paved with good intentions …
But when it comes to some of our addictions – whether it is the substances that we consume or the behaviour that we indulge – we sometimes forget that willpower alone is not enough. We have shown that we cannot change our behaviour ourselves without help. DENIAL (Don’t Even Notice I Am Lying)
is our main weapon – we protest sometimes too loudly. There is always a reason for us to have started on the next bottle of booze or the next cigarette. We forget that it is the first one that triggers our responses ….
We wish you a Successful and Safe and Happy New Year!
