'New Year, New You' is an awful lot of effort. Not only do you have to do silly things like stop drinking, you'll also be required to spend a fortune on a gym that you'll never use, a bicycle you'll never ride and a musical instrument that you'll look at longingly until finally a friend comes round, picks it up, and plays flawlessly in front of you and all your other friends.
