    For you CFers who observe this, what are you doing? I'll be trying not to drink alcohol. So far, so good.

    I don't care to give up food or booze, I'd rather get rid of some other bad habit, or form a new good one.

    I don't know, but it is going to be tough next Friday in KC abstaining from meat surrounded by all those BBQ joints.

    I don't observe it, but a co-worker was looking for fish. The Mucky Duck Pub has good fish n chips.
     
  7. The best part of Lent are Catholic Church Fish Fries, especially when they have keg beer. Fried Food, Keg Beer, and the Holy Spirit, ain't nothing better.

    I too give up alcohol and I'd encourage you to give it up, not try to give it up. You can do it!

    Instead of giving something up, I thought I would try something new. Anyone have any meth?

    I'm going to try to increase my workouts. AKA work out for the first time since 2013 would be a good start.
