That is what they say, right? Unless you're talking about drugs, booze and maybe even porn. If you quit those because you have a problem, you are a winner.

What makes this country special is that we all strive to be better, to improve our minds and our bodies. If you needed any proof that this is who we are, consider this, according to Market Watch, the average American spends over $143,000 in their life on self-help products.

To be better, healthier versions of ourselves, we could all stand to quit something. So, a new study set out to see what people are striving to give up in each state. Gallus Medical conducted the study by analyzing Google Search data. They were able to come up with a variety of interesting findings but the major players were the same. The 10 major things Americans are looking to quit this year are:

1 - Alcohol

2 - Tobacco

3 - Pornography

4 - Nail Biting

5 - Cannabis

6 - Sugar

7 - Caffeine

8 - Gambling

9 - Junk Food

10 - Social Media

The top vice Connecticut residents were looking to ditch was.......SUGAR.

Sugar was also the top answer in many other states, the most popular around the country. Good luck to us all because there are more delicious treats available everyday. I say, we stay fat, quit social media and at least we can reduce the instances of wrong-way driving in the state which are out of control. It will also reduce the number of people blindly walking into street signs.

P.S. The clue was in the headline: "Big Daddy" = SUGAR Daddy

8 Main Street Danbury Facts So Unbelievable, They Have to be True

Danbury: "The Hat City"

At one time. Danbury was known as the hat making center of the universe. The hat making industry is what this town was built on but frankly, I'm tired of talking about hats. We are so much more than that. Danbury has a lot of intriguing true stories and many of them originated in the same place, Main Street. Main Street Danbury holds truths so unbelievable, you kind of have to. How can one 2-mile stretch of road, hold so many stories? I just does.
