Woot woot! I gave up alcohol for Lent. Didn’t quite make it… drank once on Valentine’s Day, a day after Lent began, and again on FI and my anniversary… but I almost made it.
Sort of. It was at least half a victory. Plus, I live in the land of social drinking, where it’s practically an obligation. It was really odd to stop for a bit. Exposed me to a side of society I never saw before, and made me really sympathise with my Muslim friends, because it is very hard not to drink in our society.
Anyway, Lent is now over. What did you guys give up? Why? Did you learn anything from the process?
