Lent's almost over. Time to bring your vices back.

Only a few more days until Lent is over.  

For the past 40 days, I tried to address the 7 deadly sins.  Gluttony, I gave up drinking during the week.  Sloth, I got back on a regular workout program.  Lust, I didn't look at porn or jerk off. Wrath, I meditated daily. Greed, I volunteered. Envy, I made a point of complimenting others more. Pride, I tried to be more self aware and humble in my conversations.  For the most part, I want to keep a lot of these going, but I will be jerking off to porn at the first possible opportunity then getting drunk all next week on vacation, so Lust and Gluttony are out real soon!!

 

For those of you who gave something up, what did you give up and do you have plans on going back to it?

Did you actually do all of those things?  If yes, bravo!  

dude why don't you just give up lent for lent?

That is great work, op! All I did this Lent was a prayed a Rosary every day. I planned on giving up drinking, but I ended up having 2 people die and 2 funerals to go to, and I caved because I have a hard time doing funerals without alcohol. I plan and intend to continue to pray at least 1 rosary per day.

Just out of curiosity, do you not consider jacking off a sin, since the Catholic Church still does?

God sees what Kate Beckinsale looks like.  He understands.

Lol, agreed

That's great news.

 

Now I can go back to slathering my body in mayo while I watch Roadhouse

I like that idea of giving up different things for different meanings. I might steal that idea next year
