If you are asking yourself that question, check out Tan Book's Pious Practices Document (defunct now). It offers a great number of suggestions on what to give up and what practices to develop all as part of Lenten penance. I'm going to print the 3 page document out and do various items on the list as Lent progresses.
The Document starts out with words from Holy Scripture including Jesus's words in Luke 13:3 "Unless you shall do penance, you shall all likewise perish." Whether it is giving up the Internet or attending more Masses and praying the Rosary, all of us can do some penance this Lent.
