2012 was a rather big and transformative year for Jersey Shore star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.

He entered a rehab treatment facility back in March, and he’s been trying to stay clean ever since – even when his fellow guidos and guidettes from the show have been hitting the bars at full speed.

Since he was successful at quelling his boozy behavior for ’12, is he planning to take what he's learned into 2013, too?

Oh yes.

Speaking to RumorFix about his New Year’s resolution, Sitch explained “This year was such an unbelievable and important year for me. So now that it’s ending, [there will be] nothing but smiles [for 2013].  I just want to be home with my family and celebrate one of the biggest years of my life. I’m very excited what the future is going to bring.”
