Are you giving up anything for Lent?

Lent, for those that don't know, is a six-week preparation time for Easter. Some churches encourage people to give up something for Lent just as Christ sacrificed his life to save people from their sins. Some people give up meat, chocolate, alcohol or some other pleasure during the forty days 'fast' So I was just wondering - Are you giving up anything for Lent?

Chriss, As a pagan I don't feel the need to give up anything that God/Goddess have provided for me. I glory in all the bounty of Nature and the All that Is Always ~Donna

I don't think I will give up anything, as I regularly make resolutions and then I get mad at myself for not keeping them. I will probably go to Mass every day, as I live beside the Church, so that should be easy enough.
