    The Best Decision You've Made This Year

    Mine is this: I've put all politicians on my ignore list. My mood has improved dramatically.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    I haven't made it yet. But I'm going to have to decide in the next few months. It will be big.

    Actually, buying the Time Trail bike was a great decision for my riding. Has given me a little extra motivation I needed.
    Just Do It..

    To accept that I was screwing up my life (long story I'm not going to go into), and to do something about it. It's pretty much going to be a long hard road, but it's going to be well worth it in the end.

    I'd kina like to do the same. But I'd either have to become a monk or find new friends and I'm not really interested in doing either.

    i won't ever give up alcohol, but I have cut back greatly.

    I probably have around one "drink" a week at the most. Drink being either a glass of wine, dram of scotch, or a bottle of beer. I used to be the person that would go through at least one of those "micro kegs" you find at the grocery store a week, sometimes two. Then i realized my liver would probably stop picketing and sending letters to OSHA if I cut back a little.

    I make the decision every day to give up alcohol, just for the day. 2747 days in a row, it's still the best decision I've ever made.

    I've tried that. But one always turns into two always turns into just one more and so on and so forth. So I'm figuring "all or nothing" is going to be the way I have to do it.

    Congrats to those who have cut back or quit drinking all togther. I'll have a drink or two now and then, but must admit I've increased my intake since moving into my own place with a wetbar.

    Best decision for me - said "I Do" at my wedding. May 13th, 2006.

    I should do the same. Then again, I should do a lot of things. It's really too easy an escape. Not that I don't have plenty to escape from, but there must be a better way.
