1. I quit smoking in February of last year but occasionally get a pack when I'm drunk or stressed. This year I'm aiming to quit buying packs completely. I'm still allowing myself to drunk bum a single at a bar.

2. Learn new things - javascript, jquery, php and ajax are at the top of my list.

3. Be more positive, even when I feel like bitching.

4. Focusing on the task at hand and try to do it in the best way I can manage, rather than multitasking on 19 different things or people at the same time. I've cut out the checking my phone while having "conversations" with boring people but that could still use some work.

5. Get a new job.

6. Listen to people and ask them about themselves more, even if they are boring. :P

7. Cut down on the amount of f-bombs I drop in a typical day. Hopefully the being more positive will help this.

8. Get back to working out consistently.

9. Read one real paper book once per month. Graphic novels do not count.

Fuck this one. People love f-bombs.

Have you read this? I think it applies to all addictions, not just alcohol. As long as you're not smoking often, I'm pretty sure the damage to your health is minimal.

Yes. I am happy with the amount I smoke / don't smoke. But I also like the feeling of trying not to do something and then being successful at it. Kicking ass. Willpower. Etc.

A formidable list but I know you can do it. My advice for anyone that wants to "be more positive" is to surround yourself with positive people. Same advice applies for any such goal. Wanna be healthier? Surround your self with healthy people etc.
