“I do think New Year’s resolutions can’t technically be expected to
begin on
New Year’s Day, don’t you? Since, because it’s an extension of New
Year’s Eve,
smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop
abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system.
Also dieting on New Year’s Day isn’t a good idea as you can’t eat
rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary,
moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be
much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the
second.”
Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones’s Diary
