Most don't last and those going past a week are truly dedicated to the cause (or under doctor's orders). Why does this happen? Wrong mindset. The dedication is there, but the true gravity of their decision hasn't sunk in yet. So how does one go around changing your lifestyle for the better?
Up until February this year I was a smoker, not the pack-a-day kind of smoker, but a smoker nonetheless. I also weighed the wrong side of 110 kg (242 pounds for the

You've managed, against all odds, to befriend nearly every country. Your kind, perky nature and great attitude earn the friendship of your allies, and your tendency to promote peace keep those who would harm you at bay. Your army, however, is extremely weak, given that your country is more focused on keeping peace than warfare. You are kind, gentle, and quiet most of the time, but know how to keep from being ignored when it counts. But you have to be careful to not be taken advantage of. You trust too easily, and therefore you are sometimes seen as too weak to stand alone.
