Twitter users say that they’re giving up school and chocolate for Lent. We’re guessing that they’re only serious about one of those things.

According to the website Open Bible, which analyzed more than 100,000 tweets posted this week – and has been reported by The Washington Post and other media outlets – the top 10 list of things people are giving up includes:

School, chocolate, Twitter, social networking, alcohol, swearing, soda, sweets, fast food and college.

At No. 11: Coffee.

At No. 12: You.

Other things that made the Top 100 include emojis, boys, sex, Starbucks, hot Cheetos, pizza, candy, shopping, makeup and selfies.

We’ll believe that last one when we see it ourselves.
