hmm is it considered lent if you give up anime / manga for some other addiction? like video games? or possibly drinking ? people could also technically get addicted to helping other people...o.O the question ish embarrassed is it considered lent if you give up something to become addicted to something else, or to give up addiction totally embarrassed

Giving up something personal, like the time you spend on manga, whether it be for Lent or another religeous purpose only has true meaning when you use that time instead for other purposes that benefits others.
Otherwise, it is nothing more than a New Years resolution with an expiry date.

Doesn't Lent mean abstinence to purify your sins? That’s got little to do with using time/money in other ways....

I don't own any manga, so I couldn't really do that.

New Years resolutions have an expiration date as well... it's just a little longer than lent.

I know Christians have something like this from 40 days 40 nights, but I just knew that it is called Lent. Hmmmm no anime/manga for a month and 10 days? No can do.

Why is there a "What's Lent" option when it's explained in the initial post? If it said "Never heard of it before" instead then I could understand (I assume that's what a majority of the voters in that category thought it meant) but doing it this way still seems...weird. :/

I don't celebrate Lent.
But i can give up manga/anime for 40 days.
I mean, I pretty much already am because I don't read that much, just around 1 chapter per day. So yeah.
Video games are the same thing as manga for me.
I can have it, or cannot in a period of time, either way is fine.
But to completely get rid of it, never.
Why should I haha.
