My no-soda experiment lasted 2.5 days. Even though I drank tea to replace the caffeine, I have had a headache every day since Monday. Today I actually started falling asleep during a meeting. I finally couldn't take it any more and tried drinking a half-bottle of diet Mountain Dew to kill the pain (ibuprofen didn't work) and wake me up.
Tomorrow I go back to soda-free and will hopefully make it a lot longer! If it takes the average smoker 7 tries before they quit for good, I wonder how long it takes the average soda junkie?
