It felt like I was going through what a cocaine addict goes through when kicking it, but I can say today, that I am no longer a coke addict. And I did it cold turkey. YAY!
I staffed a summer camp last week. There were two beverage options: water and lemonade. That's it. So whether I wanted to or not, I was cutting Coke cold turkey. It was rough. I was miserable. Three days into camp, I noticed it took a lot longer for the headache to start. By Friday the only thing giving me a headache were the campers being especially loud inside. I went to the grocery store yesterday needing to get drinks for the house. Didn't even go down the soda aisle.
Now, I will confess I had a coke this morning. Nothing seems to cure a hangover quiet like some greasy fried chicken and a coke. And guess what? I barely was able to finish it because of how nasty the coke tasted to me. I'm so incredibly proud of myself.
