Poll: Do you keep your New Year's resolutions?

There’s just 60 hours to go in 2012 so we want to know about your New Year’s resolutions.

THERE’S JUST 60 hours to go in 2012 which means it’s time to start thinking about resolutions for next year.

Getting fit, losing weight, spending more time with family and friends, and quitting smoking are usually at the top of the list for what people want to achieve in the coming year – but keeping them is a whole other thing.

One British study found that less than one quarter of people manage to stick to their resolutions over the course of a year, often because they focus on the negative rather than the positive side of achieving their goal.

So today we’re asking: Do you usually achieve your New Year’s resolutions?

Poll Results:

I don't make resolutions (673)
No (349)
Yes (71)
