I'm a lapsed Catholic, but usually on Lent I give up heroin. The fact that I've never tried heroin, or any other opiates, helps me through those difficult 6 weeks. That Easter morning after Lent, though... man it sure feelsgoodman to do exactly the same thing I've done the other 364 days of the year and continue not touching heroin.

Even though I'm not religious at all, can I still play the Lent game? I'd be more than willing to give up being an adult with adult-ish responsibilities for Lent.

Except sex. Not parting with that one. Just the bill-paying, chore-doing, children-rearing part. A 6-week vacation from being responsible sounds fekking awesome.

Im not catholic, or any category of any faith.

But every Lent season I have to give up Long Johns on Friday because the local swarm it like a plague of locusts.

Not being Catholic, I never gave up anything for Lent. Closest I ever came was religiously giving up pop for track season every year.

That won't work now since I've been off pop for over a decade which has made me as big a tea drinker as any Brit.

I'm giving up not installing the new faucet in the kitchen.

I guarantee it will take a minimum of 35 days to get up the motivation to perform my contortionist under the sink act and finally do it.

...pfft, 40 days in the desert. I'll trade ya JC!

How about "Not posting snarky comments"?

Go elsewhere if you want to post comments like that... No-one forced you to read this thread!

Nothing, because it is a Christian ritual and I don't believe in any gods
