    what to give up

    so Lent is coming up and i was wondering what people are planning to give up if at all?

    chocolate is a popular 1 but i dont really eat it so that would be useless, looking for suggestions

    Well if you're really going to get in to the spirit of it, you should give up something you REALLY enjoy...

    Obviously, breathing isn't much of a goer... the same goes for drinking fluids and eating enough so you don't die...

    But really it's about abstaining as an act of rememberance of Jesus' forty days and nights in the wilderness.

    So give up something that you really like if you really want to make a statement.

    How about giving up pretending to be Keith Chegwin?

    Worked for me last year, and I havent pretended to be him once since then.

    Hmmm

    I never really have anything too naughty anyway. And I refuse to give up my booze, only just been able to drink again after antibiotics. Yes, i have been sober for over a week.

    I suppose as of today I will make sure I have at least 2 pieces of fruit at work (instead of crisps or chocolit).

    I might give up standing on the escalators because its lazy, I think as of tomorrow I'll walk up and down them instead! (that's 6 a day... and the one at London bridge in the morning is a bit of a monster)

    I'm not allowed to drink for another 11 months! I haven't had a drop to drink since I think December the 1st, and Christmas Eve was my 21st and I wasn't allowed a drop.

    I'll give up alcohol for lent, seeing as though I'm not allowed to drink it anyway, that'll make things easier

    ditto and I don't really class myself as having a religion even though my parents are Catholics and I went to catholic schools.
