It’s the first day of  Lent and many will choose to do their best to give something up until Easter. How about you? Are you giving anything up?

Over the years many friends and family members have pledged to do without something during this period. Most but not all of them have actually followed through with the plan.

I’d say the most common thing that friends have vowed to do without is meat and especially red meat for good health reasons. Many have tried to give up cigarettes and even chocolate.

Some swear off of coffee and younger family members have tried to do without video games. However I don’t think any of the kids ever managed to be successful with that one!

So what are you giving up for Lent? Check out my poll and vote!
