Most of us do it every year -- we make some sort of resolution (or even several resolutions) and then break it (or them) not terribly long after the new year begins. Perhaps this year you want to set some goals regarding your IBD, such as resolving to take better care of yourself, forging a better relationship with your healthcare team, or being more assertive about your health care goals.
Unfortunately we tend to fall back into our old patterns pretty quickly and abandon our goals despite even the best of intentions.
