First he gave up drugs, then partying and booze but now Colin Farrell is making the ultimate sacrifice - WOMEN.
The movie star has told pals he's "devastated" over his split with actress Alicja Bachleda and wants to take a "year out" from serious relationships.
The pair - who have a 15-month-old son Henry - were telling pals they wanted to marry before their relationship hit the rocks last November.
Now Colin, who has dated a string of celebrity beauties over the years, insists he's ending his womanising ways.
A close friend of the Dubliner revealed last night: "Colin's fed up with his love life. He thinks he's doomed to failure.
"Despite the shocking nature of his split with Alicja, there's a lot more to that than meets the eye. It wasn't just Colin getting bored and wanting to move on.
"He was really cut up about it and had a pretty bad Christmas as a result. So he's been telling everyone that his New Year's resolution is to take a break from women.
"Everyone is saying there's not a chance in hell he'll stay away from the opposite sex. But he's been telling us, 'I managed to quit all my other vices and I'll quit this one too'."
Colin, 34, has a disastrous record when it comes to his love life - a spurof-the-moment marriage to Amelia Warner in 2001 soon hit stormy waters and they split just weeks later.
He has a seven-year-old son, James, with American model Kim Bordenave but their relationship never got off the ground and Colin confessed the pregnancy came from a one night stand.
The pal added: "Colin wants the next relationship to be serious so he's going to take his time and spend a few months just chilling and staying away from the girls. But we'll believe it when we see it."
**Everything works out in the end. If it hasn't worked out, it's not the end.**
