Default Poker/Gambling New Years Resolutions

I thought a poker/gambling degeneracy New Years resolution thread would be an interesting idea.

post your goals/resolutions for the new year, they dont have to necessarily be poker/gambling related either.

1.) Make 100k+ in poker next year.
2.) Quit being lazy and track my play more often. I often find myself playing without a HUD/Pokertracker just because I dont feel like starting it up.
3.) Limit my degenerative gambling (besides poker ldo) to the occasional craps bet when waiting for a table at the casino and a sports bet every now and then. Dont play BJ.
4.) Quit playing short sessions during the middle of the day.
5.) Dont play when too drunk and/or tired.
6.) Dont play tilted.
7.) Read more strategy posts/books

1) Don't quit this time and have to "lose" a year
2) At least 2.5/5 on BF by end of year and maybe even 5/10
3) Stop being lazy and play more hands
4) More Vids

I get a penny here and there - it's like a flock of doves left and each of them pooped 1c into my account.

What the medications can't do - let Floyd do the rest.

*sigh* Used to be a good site.
