Here is a better answer to a hard question.
No-one now (the people who did are dead or did not actually live in the trenches but are relatives) actually knows how it was. There are many journals from fallen soldiers that say that it was horrible and do not want to experience it again ( they can't, their deseased). Some say it was difficult and not a good experience. Old veterans who where still alive makes it out to be a disaster with many of their partners, generals and mates who have fallen.
All they really mean is that you do not want to experience it and it was very hard. Many of the jobs including digging the trenches which was difficult and messy. Water carrying up a hill was hard. In winter, they had very bad equipment (summer uniform).
