I agree about the pain. Giving up the dairy is probably the hardest part for me. By Easter, I'm having indecent dreams about 3-egg omelets with multiple cheeses. <swoons> And ice cream. And lattes.
I don't give up chocolate, though, so if I wanted to have some during Lent, I'd just make sure it was milk-free. Not difficult, since I'm a big fan of dark chocolate. Shall I have some for you, on V-Day?

We give up eggs, dairy, and meat. I give up chocolate. I usually lose
a bit of weight. (But being without dairy is really painful!)
