Let's start.
I got familiar with the concept of mindfulness meditation about 9 years ago, by reading "Mindfulness in plain English". I was recovering from my depression and was thinking about finding a way to enhance my concentration. During these 9 years I listened to lot's of dharma talks and thought about meditation. But all this time I cannot recall any time that I have meditated continuously for more than 2 months, and those periods of continuous practice  were separated by long long pauses. I am starting again and I hope this time would be different.  

Things to do:
  1. Try to clarify why it is good to meditate. Write it down. Memorize it. Internalize it.
  2. Try to remember why you didn't continue to practice in the previous times.

Welcome to the site. I hope it helps you make meditation a regular part of your life. It is really from regular sitting that it really starts to make a real difference to how you experience your life. Lots of 'reasons' will come up to avoid sitting. When that happens, maybe just try to get back to it as soon as you can - even just a few minutes in a day is better than nothing.
