Lent starts tomorrow, March 9 - Ash Wednesday. Are you fasting? Giving anything up? I'm giving up coffee and chocolate again this year. I'm not addicted to either, neither has an affect on me, they don't keep me up or anything. I also won't have any side effects, no headaches or jitters. I am more "addicted" to the habit of having a coffee (I have a Nespresso machine). I also want chocolate when I see it or think about it, I don't actually crave it. I don't find either that hard to give up, so it's hard to make it worthwhile for Lent. I can't think of anything else though... any suggestions? I am also trying to find something to commit to for Lent this year. It doesn't need to be a daily something, or religiously based, but I'd like it to be something related to relaxing. Any suggestions here too?
