It’s that time of year again: Lent is upon us. Now that I’m twenty years old, giving up broccoli (a childhood favorite) is no longer going to cut it. But cutting out sweets? Now that’s a challenge.

2. The Optimism
It may be your 8th year in a row trying to give up desserts, but this is your year. You can’t wait to get rid of every sweet in sight!
3. The Withdrawal

4. The Denial

5. The Anger
