New year's resolutions. Kept any? Breathing Space would like to know

For the Winter 2012 edition of Breathing Space, we're doing a feature on new year's resolutions. So if you've ever made any that you've actually kept, then we'd like to hear from you.

We'd like to know what they were, why you made them and when, difficulties you faced, how you managed to overcome temptation and habit, how long you've kept them, and so on.

Obviously, we're interested in hearing about any related to self-management of health conditions -- but they don't all have to be related to lung-related health or even health at all. We'd also like to hear about unusual, highly personal, maybe even longest-held resolutions that people have made and stuck to.

So, if you want a chance to take part and be featured, tell us all about your successful new year's resolution in an email to

Contact us by, ideally, no later than 15 October and tell us whether you would be willing to be photographed for the magazine if your contribution is selected.

Please note that, for reasons of space, unfortunately we won't be able to include everyone who gets in touch.

Is this a repost or a system error? - it had already appeared last week -


Repost on Community Blog because it was previously only on BLF blog.


I never make them. If I resolve to do something I do it there and then as I can't see the point of putting it off until another day, when my resolve may have weakened!


For me the only resolution I ever need to make at any time of the Year is 'keep on applying all I learnt on my PR course, its working for me. Its been 8 years since my PR course and I am still going strong and staying stable.
