Just to make this clear and straight- I am not a Muslim. But in honor of my Islamic friends I will do my own fasting during the Ramadan.
This is quite a challenge for me. For so long I have been wanting to fast (the real one) but it seems I could not let go of of alcohol, especially ice-cold beers. WIth food, I have no problem. I could go for days without eating.
I tried fasting for three days long time ago but wasn't able to make it through because I succumbed to the pleasures of the mind and body.
Now I want to try it again.
With the course of this fasting, I ask my friends and enemies for their forgiveness, those whom I have hurt I ask for pardon. I am a weak person and I am trying to make myself a better one.
Please help me guys. Thirty days without food and water from sunup to sundown is tough. Your prayers are welcome.
