First let me start by saying this, I'm not Catholic and I've never participated in Lent. I've had my share of Fat Tuesdays in the past but I've never had an Ash Wednesday. Although this year for the hell of it I thought I would play along with Lent proceedings and pick something to give up for 40 days. I do like the message behind Lent and in a land of excess and greed it feels good to give something up instead of insisting on taking more in.
My item to give up for Lent is simple....
I'm not going to use sugar in my coffee for 40 days.
Why? Find out here.
So what are you giving up for Lent if anything?
