It’s Quitting Time!


24th February 2012


It’s that time of year where we all make a special effort to abstain from something we enjoy for forty days. 11850, Ireland’s original independent directory enquiry service, conducted a poll to see what Ireland is giving up this year following on from an increase in call volumes for alcohol addiction advice and information services by 9% in January.

A few surprises were found with some choosing to give up porn while others deciding to give up their dignity… that should make an interesting forty days! Chocoholics came top of the poll with 36% of respondents choosing to give up chocolate this year.

Best of luck to everyone making the effort to give up something this lent whatever your attempts may be. 11850 can provide you with any number you need to help you along the way, so go on try your best this lent—after all it is only for forty days.
