So I tried this back almost 2 years ago and fell off the bandwagon sometime and it got even worse than it was before. Diet Coke is my addiction and I am starting Day 5 of no soda. Really more of the diet drinks but since I am not a huge fan of regular soda it falls in there by default. This past weekend was the absolute hardest so of course I slept most of yesterday away to take my mind off the cravings. I read a few studies about Diet drinks and how addictive they are and I am a total believer of this as I was drinking anywhere from 4 to 10 a day depending on the day and couldn't seem to get down to 1 at all. Due to this I am going cold turkey and plan on making it a lifestyle change.
My main issue is that I am not a milk, juice, lemonaide, tea, or pretty much anything else drinker. I am not even a fan of alcoholic beverages (to my mother's dismay). So this doesn't give much option on things to drink other than water. Which yes we need but it gets old pretty quick when that is all you really like. I don't even like flavors added to my water. After talking to my father, I inherited this from him but he like beer so he has me beat.
I will try to keep my blog updated on my progress but when I have made up my mind about something like this there normally is no changing it.
Thanks for taking the time to read this as I know they aren't always interesting. Just needed to make it public what I was doing again.
