14:48 03 January 2013
THOUSANDS of people across the county will today be continuing in their drive to keep their New Year’s resolution.
From stopping smoking and drinking, through to spending more time with family and friends, there are a number of things that people want to change as 2013 gets under way.
The Ipswich Star went out on the streets to find out what your resolutions are for this year.
Andrew Davey, of Grundisburgh, said: “My New Year’s resolution is not to drink alcohol.
“I’m still smoking but you have got to do it one at a time.”
Rory Collins, of Woodbridge, added: “My resolution is to get fit so I can do the Tough Guy Challenge. I’m in the army so getting fit is important.”
Dan Storey-Joyce, of Woodbridge, said: “My resolution is to stop smoking.”
Keegan Baker, of Capel St Mary, has not made a resolution this year.
He said: “I never stick with them, it is just hard really. For the last two years, my resolution has been to quit smoking, but it doesn’t happen.”
Luke Preston, of Kesgrave, said: “It would have been to quit smoking, but I did that in October for Stoptober.
“I suppose it would be just to keep quitting this year.”
And for Angela Merry, of Rushmere St Andrew, her aim is to not drink in January.
She added: “I thought that a month without drinking would be good.”
