"Yes, I did, but I wasn't too successful. My goal was to give up fried food, but unfortunately, I wasn't strong enough. I should have given up chocolate. I probably would have been more successful, but I thought giving up fried foods would have been healthier."


Lakesha Boyd


"N'all, I didn't give up anything because I don't really know what Lent is."


Paul Schaffer


Well, I don't know what Lent is, so I didn't give up anything for Lent. I did give up drinking because my kidneys were getting bad, but that didn't have anything to do with Jesus or religion. I gave up drinking for my health."


Delany Jones


"I gave up using profanity because it's better words you could use to express yourself instead of cursing."


Sharika Conyers


"I did not give up anything for Lent, I'm sorry. I haven't been into the church thing for a while, so I guess it kind of slipped past me. I'm not sure if I would have given up anything anyway. I try to live right everyday."


Luis Romo


"I gave up not being a good Christian. I did all right. I have improved. I didn't eat meat, and I went to Mass regularly
