Papua New Guineans give their New Year’s resolutions

The New Year is just around the corner and it’s that time of the year when people list their new year’s resolution to make a change in their lives.

The New Year is a time to kick old habits out and a time for change.

Loop PNG got views from the public on what your New Year resolution is and many men in Papua New Guinea aim to quit drinking alcohol in 2017.

Edward Logo in East New Britain says he aims to cut down on the amount of alcohol he consumes and drink only on very special occasions.

“The reason being that alcohol has done more destruction on relationships, finance, profession and health”.

Papua New Guinean David Kaseng in New Zealand said he wants to save enough to return home to see his siblings and family so he will quit drinking alcohol and the unnecessary spending in order to save.

Heriberth Napalia in Port Moresby said his number one goal is to lose weight by controlling everything he consumes including alcohol and start saving.

Also in Port Moresby, athlete Vavine Yore said the only thing she wants to do more of in 2017 is spend more time with her family.

“I've been so busy with my sporting and working career in the past couple of years, I just feel I owe them a little bit more of my time”.

Iona Reto said she has a whole list of personal goals that she’s been holding off and aims to make sure that she ticks them off in the New Year.

Aleesha Isaac in West New Britain said that she would like to build more confidence in 2017 and quit chewing betelnut.
