One word...alcohol. Anyone else involved in a "fast"?

Giving up posting the boards for lent. An Easter gift for all.

Same. Trying to eat/drink healthier in general, but it's going to start with beer/alcohol.

Yeah that always seemed like a good idea, until I realized that the NCAA Basketball Tourney happens to fall during lent. Thats why I have moved on to not giving up anything. Not sure what it accomplishes. I'd just rather try to be a good person all year round doing the little things. But to each his own.

Sucks I chose to give up the boards for Lent if this is truly the case.

Would have liked to seen how that went.

What I didn't kill leading up to the Super Bowl, I demolished for Mardi Gras. Not much beer left anywhere around here.

Amen, brother. Although I'm also giving up sobriety for Lent. It's a tough sacrifice, but I think I'll manage.
