Already Failed at My One (and Only) New Year's Resolution

Yep. You read the title and this time it really was a resolution. Not like my new year's eve foodie blog on impulse decision. And my utter and complete failure to follow through has proven to me that I am truly weak minded!

It's so silly. My coffee supply stuff in the kitchen cabinet had been depleted. Went shopping for meals and on my last trip to the grocery store of the year 2015, I purposely, willfully, deliberately and intentionally did not buy my coffee stuff. (Ref: One - Two – Three – Coffee! )

This was the plan. I mean … the resolution.

On the first day of the new year, I was going to show the world that I had discipline, self-control, and firm resolve, proving my strength of character.


I was going to go the whole day without drinking a cup of coffee.

One entire day!!

I did really good too.

Up until I got out of bed and went downstairs into the kitchen.

I immediately searched through the cabinet and found some coffee my son had brought home. Then … at great risk and peril, I used some of my husband hazelnut flavored coffee creamer without asking!! My husband uses it in his oatmeal. Everyone in the house knows it is off limits. But even though it is forbidden … it was worth the risk!

LOL. I didn't last 5 minutes without my morning caffeine buzz!

Glad I didn't tell anybody this.

That way I don't have to backtrack and tell them I couldn't do it.

Also glad that was my only resolution.

Oh, sweetheart, that is not a failed resolution. That was a CHOICE!! Likely the same choice I might have made sans the hazelnut creamer. emoticon :winking:

I know its not easy going without your coffee, i wouldnt consider it failed just a minor set back

That would have been a very hard resolution to keep in this coffee society.

You can always try again tomorrow. Maybe you will make it longer next time

Awe too bad, but it is hard not going without coffee. About, resolutions for the New Year, I never make them because I never keep them,

CoralLevang - grandma20121 - markgraham - wolfgirl569 - LeaPea2417 – That's what I like about this site. Great support and encouragement. I definitely did not need to make a new year's resolution to keep socializing in this community. Love it here! :)

All is forgiven, LOL. I would never have resolved to give up coffee. I've tried that before and the withdrawal headache is just not worth it. You made a choice in favor of good head health. And think of all those flavonoids and antioxidants you would have missed out on. You did the right thing.

My New Year resolution not to make any resolutions. So far so good!

That's like telling me I won't be having at least one glass of wine a day. Or worse, telling me I don't get my tea...

Happens to the best of us. LOL! I think coffee is more addicting that all the known drugs combined!

You are far braver than I, my friend! I could never resolve not to drink coffee!

cmoneyspinner wrote on January 4, 2016, 12:14 PM

But I was so sure I was strong enough to do it. I couldn't believe how quickly I gave in. I had to laugh at myself. I'm like: "Who did I think I was kidding?"

Read a fascinating fact once that said women in Turkey were allowed to divorce their husbands if he did not present them with a pound of coffee each day. Can you imagine coffee having that kind of value attached to it? I mean … I love coffee but I wouldn't divorce my husband for it!

cmoneyspinner wrote on January 4, 2016, 12:19 PM

Brave? LOL. At this point, I'm feeling pretty silly for even trying. :)

allen0187 wrote on January 4, 2016, 6:09 PM

Wow! That is weird. I'll further look up this Turkish tradition.

Yup. Good thing I never said I was going on a diet for new year. My colleagues had no less than four boxes of biscuits and chocolates out earlier plus the remains of the French chocolate baubles I bought when we were passing through a local hypermarche there before Christmas.
