What Are You Giving Up For Lent?

I’ve never given anything up for lent before, nor even considered it. However, I may this year. My roommate, a die-hard PCA Bible teacher, is giving up coffee for lent, and as i was listening to her explain her reasoning, I started to think about the potential of doing it myself. She hasn’t given anything up for several years, but she did say that giving something up for lent made Easter a lot more meaningful. So I’m not against it on principle; I understand the reluctance, given the Roman Catholic interpretation of the practice, but I think lent can be observed in a Reformed setting.
