Whatever it is, you better eat it quick, as it's the last you'll see of it for 40 days and 40 nights.

What are you giving up for Lent? grin

OK -- I got it!
I am going to give up complaining.
Not really sure if I can do that for
40 Days and 40 Nights,
...but I shall try!
DH would be vv happy.

I'm giving up my daily stalking drool of all Ant Middleton photos on the internet.
It's Lenten sacrifice. And that bluddy restraining order !😉

I'm generally just giving up grin

The devil can never be as evil not add the Christian God.

@Esaworry top plan grin
I'm hoping that after 40 days I'll be so good at the plastic thing that I'll just keep improving, I'm not stopping at Easter.

What's the point?

It strengthens the faith blush

I'm giving up ironing for lent. I feel it's for the best grin

Facebook and it's going to be a real struggle, which is exactly why I need to give it up. No idea what I'm going to do with all of the time I'd usually waste on it though.

I'm fasting between sunrise and sunset.

The Devil can tempt; I shall resist blush

I’m giving up religion for lent. I started doing this in 1985. It went so well that I decided to continue giving up religion permanently.

Sweetpea55 Tue 05-Mar-19 18:29:06

Lent is overated. I'm giving up nothing

BlackeyedGruesome Tue 05-Mar-19 18:28:30

Nowt, non-conformist, going to celebrate all good gifts coming from God. that is my excuse and I am sticking to it

I may try to do something positive instead if I can find extra energy.

Kebab and chocolate

TheBitchOfTheVicar Tue 05-Mar-19 18:25:53

I hadn't thought. Thinking now...alcohol and crisps! Done!

TheLastNigel Tue 05-Mar-19 18:18:00

Just general bad eating. I've gone through one of my sod it I'll eat what I want stages-need to get back to being a bit more mindful about what I'm eating.

(and now I've learned how to make things bold, sorry about highlighting god. Didn't mean anything by that!.)

dudsville Tue 05-Mar-19 17:49:26

Ps. I came for the thread title - great one!

(oh, thank god I'm not religious - good luck to you, it's a great thing you're contemplating doing!)
