Down on the Farm: Forming new habits
The use of the New Year's holiday as a chance to get one's behavior under control by making resolutions just shows how firmly habit holds us in its iron grip.
I wonder how many people will dig through the dumpster at noon New Year's Day for the cigarettes they tossed twelve hours before.
Most people don't even try to break their habits, New Year's Day or otherwise.
I will not be giving up coffee, probably my most entrenched addiction. Can't go a day without it.
