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!)
