How are your New Year’s resolutions holding up? If they’ve dissolved in a puddle of tears and self-loathing (like mine have), maybe it’s time to toughen up. This website lets you break or make a habit and track it for 21 days. You can choose one of two modes- free or committed. The free mode is gratis. The committed asks you to invest $21.

You can withdraw your investment any time.
