Alright. I feel horrible for admitting to this like I’m a terrible person for even thinking it, but I just do not believe people who say they’ve given stuff up for lent.
What I suspect is that they get into their little cars and sneak off down to the shops and stuff their faces with the banned substances. No one can really give up chocolate for 40 days.
If I was going to do it I’d give up something more specific, like milky bars or chocolate buttons. Keep my options open.
I gave up this stuff. Sort of.
I’ve only had one bottle and that was because I didn’t want to drink vodka and get all sick at a party I was going to. It worked. I think it’s acceptable to fail at lent if it means you’re not sick on your friends carpet.
I’m thinking of stalking some of the people I’m working with to try and catch them eating secret chocolate. I’ll let you know how I get on.
