What Are The Hardest Things To Give Up For Lent?

A new poll for Ash Wednesday asked 8,000 people to name the hardest things to give up for Lent.

The #1 answer is watching TV or using streaming services.

Here is a list of the seven hardest things to give up:

1.  Watching TV or using streaming services.  29% of those surveyed say it would be the hardest thing to give up.  It was the #1 answer for every age group except for those falling under the ages of 18 to 24-year-old.

2.  Caffeine, 19%.

3.  Social networking, 11%.  This is #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 the age of 55.

4.  Chocolate, also 11% overall.

5.  Soda, 7%.

6.  Alcohol, 6%.
