Lent starts on Valentine's Day this year, which means anyone trying to give up sweets and chocolate won't have it easy.
It got us thinking - why not branch out from the usual Lenten promises and give up something different this year?
Here are a few suggestions for you...
1. Complaining about the weather
The weather is pretty much always shite. Surely there are more interesting things to talk about?
Irish people have never been so happy; 24 hour guilt-free non-stop talking about the weather! #ophelia

2. Eating Supermac's on the train
It's not fair to flaunt that delicious but strong-smelling food in our faces when there's no escape.
eating supermacs on the train like the godless heathen that i am...... i've become everything i ever hated

3. Sitting beside someone on Dublin Bus when there are plenty of free seats
Y u do dis?
4. Slow walking
Can you NOT.
I always have the urge to say “no please, walk slower” when people are walking ridiculously slow in front of me to the point where I said it on Grafton Street yesterday, possibly my bravest moment of 2017 and it was by accident

5. Having notions
If you've started doing your big shop in M&S you've gone too far.
6. Going on and on about being hungover
Are we meant to be impressed?
7. Watching Mrs Brown's Boys
There are so many other options...
8. Boasting about your diet
And posting gym selfies.
9. And begrudgery
Let's make this the year of wishing people well, even if they have a questionably strong accent and star in awful comedy sketches.
