Cycling is one thing I have been trying from my childhood. I started trying to learn it when I was 5 years old, now I am 26, never studies it. Last week also my husband taught me....now way...I am not able to balance cycle (now I am pretty fat). So, I decided to give up the wish! Do you have any similiar kind of experience?

I tried and tried to understand how to apply mathematical formulas to answer the questions during the math tests in high school, but I always failed and never get A in math tests. So when I graduated from high school, I finally gave up and said hasta la vista to math

I am sorry my friend. I am a Math person. I did my BS and MS in Math, but I am poor in Geography.

Well, one thing that I would love to learn to do but gave on is to play the guitar. My dad bought me one and I tried to teach myself, then I got tired of it, and until now I still don't know how to play the guitar.

I am sorry, that is sad. My brother tried learning 'thabala, made my mom buy it and finally gave up.

Learning Hindi,our national language still remains a challenge for me.I was sent to Hindi classes in my school holidays.Then in the college days,out of mt own interest,I attended the classes and got close to the first prathmic exam.But i couldn't appear for it.Then again after some years i started going to classes but can't continue due to my business schedule.I know the basic words and grammar to some extent.But I can't speak or understand to the full.So,I can say,learning Hindi is the one I give up.Cheers!

I am sorry Ganesh, I got the top mark for Hindi in my 10th examination, but after that I didn't use Hindi for a long time. So, now I am not good at understanding or speaking, but I can write. I have to watch more Hindi movies to refresh my Hindi.

Everybody have some patience and talents to learn something.We differ in the effort given to it.I think,I would have learned the language if I had the need.So,I excuse myself,that I need not speak Hindi and so I skipped it. About you,as you don't learn cycling until now,would you like to walk always to the nearest distance and choose bus or cars for long travels?Is that the reason behind?

i tried to quit from nail biting. I tried and tried. I used my own strategies which seemed to work in the begining but as time passed by the habit striked again. I generally bite my nails when i'm completely stress, that is where when i don't even know that i'm doing it and when somebody else looks at it gives a disgustful look - LOL :)

oh yes! i always feel like avoiding the junk food and soft drinks as i understand that they do harm to your health. But everytime i shop i go for the chips and coke. :( Finally, i gave up and said I don't care even if grow fatter or it spoils my health. Junk foods and soft drinks a re sometimes irresistible :)
