Hmmm. I haven't given up anything. I didn't even think about it. Then again, I'm not Catholic so I guess that makes sense. :)

Lapsed here. Haven’t given anything up for Lent since the 7th grade.

I've given up wine (no really)

I'm left with beer & whiskey.

*gulp*

It's a hard life.

I have a coworker here who a couple of years ago gave up beer for lent.

Secretly I sort of scratched my head, because I thought the whole point of lent was to "sacrifice" (you know, feel a little pain of loss over something) something that you normally do pretty regularly so that you can gain a clearer perception not only on what Jesus' sacrifice in the desert felt like, but to also gain a better perspective on those who have to do without.

And I thought, wow, if giving up beer is something that causes a sense of "sacrifice" to you, then you are probably an alcoholic. lol

Haven't even thought about Lent since the 7th grade - and I am Catholic.

Since I have done so well with this in the past....I thought I would keep it going. Gave up men a few years ago....and I must say, it has worked out very well.

Burning palms and putting a black dot on my forehead.

Nothing. I'm not Catholic and if I needed to give something up, I'd do so according to my needs, not the calendar.

If you believe I was kidding with the masturbation comment... you're wrong... at least I discovered what does "Blue Balls" mean
