A new year is approaching and it's a good chance to turn over a new leaf.

People love to make resolutions at this time of year, but what would some of the stars of the World Darts Championship like to change in 2012?

We asked some of the sport's biggest names what their New Year's resolutions are going to be...

ADRIAN LEWIS
I want to make sure I win more majors. I can improve, I'm only 26 and you can always improve. As long as I keep on improving there's no reason why I can't keep winning majors. And then I may even quit smoking...

COLIN LLOYD
To be a bit more dedicated than I have been this year. Because I haven't performed the way I can I've got a little bit disheartened, so I haven't practised hard enough and have got a little bit despondent. Next year I'll be a bit more professional and get on with it. This was the worst year I've ever had and I'll be glad to see the back of it!

MARK WALSH
I want to not underachieve like I have done over the last few years. I've got so much talent and I've been doing it on the floor, then on telly I haven't really produced my best darts. Not so much this year and I hope next year I can do it. My scoring is normally pretty good, but my doubles always seems to let me down.

RAYMOND VAN BARNEVELD
Food and drink nowadays is so important for me. I can't skip a lunch or a breakfast any more because that is not doing my body right. I work with a personal trainer now and he's telling me just to eat toast or a sandwich in the morning, again at three in the afternoon and then a dinner. I've thrown the weight loss stuff out of my house and that's it. If you eat three to six times a day then you will not have problems.

GARY ANDERSON
I must admit I'd like to try and get off the cigarettes... and maybe cut my cups of coffee down to 10 cups of coffee a day. I can drink 20 cups and still sleep for 12 hours. I know it's not good for you, but I'd rather have coffee than alcohol to be perfectly honest.

PAUL NICHOLSON
I don't make them until New Year's Eve and right now I just want to be world champion, but ultimately I want to be in the Premier League. I know that's in my hands and I'd love to make it into the Premier League.

ROD HARRINGTON
I don't really have resolutions. Everybody says they're going to lose weight, but I could do that in two weeks if I put my mind to it. What I would say is my ambitions lie with the new Youth Tour. I'm putting my time into that and making it very professional with the playing area totally free of alcohol. I'm hoping that will spread into the pro game.
