The Daily Poll

Poll: Did you stick to your Lent plan?

How’s that sweet tooth of yours?

FORTY DAYS WITHOUT chocolate? Over a month off the fags? More than five weeks without a drop of alcohol?

Did you decide to give up something over Lent?

Or maybe you took a more positive slant and tried to add something to your routine – a run every day? Or a book a week?

Now that you’re on the final hurdle, we want to know how it’s been going for you.

Did you stick to your Lent plan?*

Poll Results:

No, not at all (5017)
Yes, strictly (2263)
Eh, kind of but I fell off a few times (1460)
