It's not that I'm religious ('Cause I'm not... at least not in any traditional Judeao-christian form) but I quite regularly give up something at Lent... I used to do it to appease my Father, but now I do it to challenge myself.
This year I've sworn off the Soda Pop.
I'm a total carbonated drink freak. There is usually Ginger-Ale, Coke Zero and on occasion Fanta Red Tangerine, Fresca or Mountain Dew in the fridge. But as of last night I am Soda Pop free (with the exception of Tonic... Me and Jesus are good with that)
I am already looking forward to April 11th more than you can possibly imagine.
Anyone else stupid like me and give up something?
