While I am not Catholic, I love the tradition of Lent. Lent is the 40 days prior to Easter to obverse Lent one gives up something for that 40 days and prays at the times of craving. I gave up Caffeine (not that Mountain Dew has had a part in my identity). It has been two days, OK this is the second, and I am dying already. I am sure that this will be a reoccurring theme for the next month or so.
