Are you giving up anything for Lent?

I'm thinking Twizzlers, but that doesn't seem like enough. Ideally I would give up smoking, but I'm not ready for that yet. Any other ideas? (Not sugar all together, I'd die! :p)

  • I'm not Catholic, but I respect the way our Lord fasted for 40 days after His baptism. I wish I could give up chocolate, but I'm only human. ; )

  • I'm going to pretend to give up CM and spend it lurking and spying on people while I psychoanalyze them. Oh, wait, someone already did that last year...

  • I considered giving up stupid people for Lent... but then I realized I'd have to become some sort of recluse in order to do that.

    Give it up for 40 days, right?

  • We don't really do the whole Lent thing, I always thought that was kind of a Catholic thing. But I thought about giving something up just to see if I can. Like fast food or something.
