What’s the Hardest Thing You’ve Had to Give Up?
Generally, when we give up doing something—it’s because of health or there is another person involved. People give up smoking because of the adverse effects it has on that person’s health both short and long term. Some people have to give up certain foods because of health issues—I’ve had to reduce my input of chocolate because now that I am older it bothers me. The hardest part about that is that I really enjoy chocolate but it is necessary to find another treat.
So—what’s the hardest thing you’ve had to give up and why?

Fast food has been the hardest thing for me to give up. I wouldn't say that I used to eat a lot of it, but having that fast, convenient option was always something I enjoyed. When I became a vegetarian (roughly 2 years ago), I had to quit most burgers and sandwiches (which I described as my 'favorite' food). For the most part there are alternatives (veggie burgers and sandwiches) but every once and a while I will pass a mcdonalds or a burger king and feel that itch.
That would be ice hockey; I had to give it up while I was comatose and during my rehab. Thank God, I was able to eventually return to the ice. I am hoping to keep playing until life-end. I have been playing hockey for 1/2 a century now. Although my Better Half claims I am only 18 for the third time...
