    Pardon my ignorance of Catholicism, but do priests give up anything for lent? If they do.....

    I completely forgot it was lent. Now I've got to think of something to forego. Hmm....

    Well, Day 1 of Lent and I'm trying to "not eat like shit."

    It's tough, considering a salad tastes like shit.

    Why is eating healthy so hard?

    I'm giving up not smoking, so for the next 40 days, I'll be puffing like a chimney.

    Soda and fast food. The soda will be the hardest one like it is every year.

    I'm going to give up McDonalds breakfast. That'll be hard, but I think next week I'm starting to work evenings, so it will work.

    I gave up sodas.
    And I'm not Catholic either, but I adopted this back in college.

    Here in Louisiana, seafood (usually fried) is immensely popular. A lot of Catholics "sacrifice" by "giving up meat" -- usually only for Fridays -- and instead eating massive amounts of seafood: fish, crawfish, shrimp, oysters, etc. It's sad that they think they're giving up something, when in reality they are dining better than many people in the world.

    Me? I gave up Catholicism for Lent in 1984 and never picked up the habit again.

    They aren't "giving up" meat on Fridays. Catholics aren't allowed to eat meat on Friday's during Lent. :D
