Today is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent for Catholics around the world. That means a lot of people are giving up something they love today, even many people who aren't specifically Catholic. A list of things people are giving up this year has been compiled using Twitter. Here are the top 10 Lent sacrifices:

  1. Chocolate
  2. Twitter
  3. Social Networking
  4. Alcohol
  5. School (I'm just going to assume this one is a joke)
  6. Sweets
  7. Swearing
  8. Soda
  9. Fast food
  10. Coffee
