Now, don't let the headline fool you. This isn't as alarming as it seems. I have an addiction but it's not as bad as others-- I love Diet Coke. Typically, I drink about 5-6 glasses/bottles/cans a day. That's a lot of caffeine and artificial sweetener. It has gotten to the point where I'm so dehydrated because I'm just not drinking enough water and instead am consuming sugar-- which dehydrates people (artificial or not).
So, I want to quit drinking it. My plan? Carry around water. If I have water to drink, I'll be more likely to choose it over Diet Coke because it's already here. I won't have to spend money or go through the inconvenience of purchasing it. It's been two days and I haven't had a whole lot. I had some at dinner yesterday and then at lunch today. I like the way that this is going.
So, here's to no more Diet Coke. Or, at the very least, to just one or two servings a day. That seems like something that I can do. It seems plausible... that is, until I have a headache and an exam to study for.
