For our annual New Year's Party, we will be playing a variation on the game "Family Feud." As you may know, this game requires people to guess at that the results of various public survey's. We thought it might be a good idea to post some of those survey questions here, and see what kind of results we get. So please feel free to respond with a single answer choice; all earnest answers are greatly appreciated. Today's question is any easy one: "What do you think is the most common New Years resolution?" Some examples might be to lose weight, save money, make new friends, fall in love, etc. Please try to keep the answers general. Any viable answers are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I think quit smoking would be among the top answers. With the price of smokes going up and state taxes that many are going to try to quit.

I like to think that new year's resolutions are not just static goals but are attitudes that one is deciding to take for the next year. For my top three, I guess: 1. Take more measures to live a healthier lifestyle (lose weight, eat healthy, exercise, etc.) 2. Adopt ways to save and earn more money (getting other jobs) 3. Having more conversations with God (I'm betting on "losing weight" as the top new year's resolution though.;p)

My guess would be to loose weight and the next one to stop smoking, followed by make more money. I'll interested to know how this come out.

Don't make resolutions!!! I'm NOT very good at keeping any New Years Resolution so I've made it a habit to NOT lie to myself by saying I'm going to do anything in particular. If there's something I need to fix, I try & fix it all during the year instead of making it a one-time solution. I know you ONLY wanted short, general answers, but the Guidelines say that's a NoNo. So, just use what I said in bold letters above. I hope you & your guests have fun at your party!!!

I would say "have more time with my family". I todays work schedule, giving more time with my family gets less and less each year. A promotion at work will surely benefit the family, but in the expense of more time to the company your working. There are even times that your physical body is with your family, but your mind is thinking about work. I guess, these would be on the top list of New Years Resolution especially for the working class.
