If your really serious you could try hipnotherapy I gave up smoking that way 3 years ago I now use the money I save to fund my sax addiction,the only down side is every now and then I get a terrible urge to chase car wheels.))
"Giving up stuff" is OK. It's the Queens english that's not the Queen's English!
I don't think my occasional gin aperitif and glasses of wine are worthy of giving up and I have no other vices (that's my story anyway); apart from playing the sax and I could never give that up!
I'm not giving anything up. I wouldn't give something up for Lent anyway, as I'm not a Christian, so Lent means nothing to me. The last thing I gave up was fags, about 16 years ago. My remaining vices are all staying, as I'm too fond of them to give any of them up.
Same here. I'm off normal chocolate at the moment, anyway, as I'm doing Atkins, although they do some very nice low-carb choc bars of their own, and I'm drinking unsweetened cocoa (which is nicer than it sounds) in place of Ovaltine.
And like you, I love my other vice(s) too much to give 'em the boot. Mind you, if Dr Kawashima continues to be the smug, self-satisfied, fickle, unfunny little g*t he is, he won't last much longer.
