Proceed:继续进行,继续做

着手做:

His lawyers have decided not to proceed with the case.

正在继续的事件:

Preparations for the festival are now proceeding smoothly.

Succeed:成功;实现目标;达到目的

强调持续某件事得到好的结果:

You need to be pretty tough to succeed in the property world.

Continue:(使)继续,(使)持续,(使)延续。

中断了一段时间,再继续:

It's said that as the boat went down the band continued to play.

可能没有中断,一直继续下去:

If she continues drinking like that, I'll have to carry her home.
