30 days to change a habit, follow up

about a month ago i posted this blog:
i talked about some of my bad habits and how i was going to work on them. i realized a very bad habit was drinking soda. i realized it's a gateway drug for me. i leads to eating sugary food, over eating and drinking. when i drink soda i want some rum in it. i realized soda was the root of a lot of problems and a lot of bad habits.
my routine would be to stop at the store and buy a soda on the way to work. i have completely kicked that habit. i did have a couple sodas over the past 30 days but they didn't effect me the same way they did when i was drinking them daily. i am completely fine not drinking alcohol on a daily basis. i don't crave sugar in the afternoons. i don't get nausiatingly hungry before lunch. i can have a soda and be fine, i won't want one later or the next day. it's a great feeling! i feel as though i've gotten some control over myself.
i know from past experiences that i could easily fall back into this soda-a-day habit. i know i have to focus daily on not drinking any. so my goal for december is to not have any soda. if i get distracted and lose focus i will slide back into that habit. i do not want that habit any longer, the consequences are not worth the few seconds of deliciousness.
