Giving up for Lent

I've decided to give up all sugar (apart from fruit) for Lent.

I'm not religious, but I've read in multiple places that it takes 28days to form a habit, and I think that by saying "it's only for 40 days"..."it's only for 39 days" etc will make it easier and then at the end I can decide if I want to continue or not.

I'm a complete sugar addict and although I know it makes me feel like rubbish I find it challenging to say "I'll never eat this again". Doing it for a short period at first seems more manageable and then hopefully I will be able to continue.

Anyone else up for joining me in cutting something out? It doesn't have to be sugar 😊

It was a toss up between chocolate or alcohol.
I chose to give up chocolate!
