I will pass on it

The reflexive form is commonly used in English as "I will pass on it."  So your examples:

Je vais me passer de pain pendant une semaine.I´m going to go without bread for a week.Instead it could be translated: I'm going to pass on bread for a week. 
Or a simpler form: Q. Would you like another drink?  A. I'll pass.

Yeah, that's a good connection with English. Makes it easier to remember the phrase.
