A new poll for Ash Wednesday asked 8,000 people to name the HARDEST things to give up for 40 days for Lent. Here are the seven hardest things to give up . . .
1. Watching TV or using streaming services. 29% said it would be the hardest thing to give up. It was the #1 answer for every age group except 18- to 24-year-olds.
2. Caffeine, 19%.
3. Social networking, 11%. It was the #1 answer for young people. 24% of people between 18 and 24 said it would be the hardest, compared to just 7% of people over 55.
4. Chocolate, also 11% overall.
5. Soda, 7%.
6. Alcohol, 6%.
7. Fast food, 5%.
8% of people said they weren’t sure which one of those things would be the hardest to give up. And 4% said they already abstain from all of them.
