Giving up fruits and vegetables? Words escape me on the logic of that. I 'm giving up the same thing I always give up. Not a damn thing.

The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word, and doesn't even make sense.

I'm giving up the arbitrary giving up of things based on a calendar.

And yes, I'm Catholic.

I'm giving up religion. And in doing so, there will be no Easter to end my giving it up, so it will remain indefinitely.

Haven't decided yet...I should probably hurry up and do so. Last year I managed to successfully give up chocolate for the entirety of Lent, something I'm rather proud of. Maybe it will be coffee and soft-drink this year.

One doesn't have to be Catholic to participate. I think the Catholic church just takes Lent more seriously (or holds it in more importance) than protestant churches such as my own.

I've given up Mountain Dew, and the first three days is rough. I think I need to develop a habit of hookers and blow, it would be easier to give up than Mountain Dew.

I hardly eat them anyway, so it should be easy. No way in the world I am giving up women, alcohol, gambling and red meat.

When Orthodox Lent actually starts, which is in about a month, there'll be no animal products or alcohol for the duration (except for a token amount where allowed on feasts), and will try to modify my behaviour to be more focused on God, giving more and helping others.

Lent should be more than just a giving things up contest. Behaviours and attitudes are important too.

Alcohol. I haven't felt like drinking alcohol at all after I got some amazing Mojito drinks in Thailand during my trip there soon after Christmas, now everything that I can get within 50km from here tastes just boring.

For summer I might get some ingredients and make my own though.

Years ago I had a classmate whose filthy rich family would "give up" red meat and poultry for lent. They would feast on the finest seafood in the best restaurants in town, they even had a chef come over to their McMansion and prepare vegetarian and seafood meals for them, so much for giving up!

You don't have to give up anything. You can actually start doing something new,something positive for you and the people and world around you. Like doing the garden for the old lady down the street for free, or not swearing in front of kids etc.

Not participating in Lent is the highest selfish act there is.
