my battle to break my Diet Coke addiction
Friday, July 08, 2011
Why is Diet Coke, or any Coca Cola products for that matter, so darn addictive? It truly is like a drug that is so hard to break free from and is a battle that I am raging daily.
But I do believe that I am winning. In the past, I could easily buy a 42oz Big Gulp at 7-11 and not have a second thought on finishing it before lunchtime. I usually do not buy pop products for the home because as a family, if it is in the home, we go through it like water! And if it is in the home, I can easily drink a six pack during the day without blinking.
Since July first, I have only purchased Diet Coke for myself three times, and always the small size. I have enjoyed it for what it was and didn't look back.
I have not been craving it too much, which is great. But I have been having headaches, and the moodiness has been Atrocious!! With a capital "B"!
But I am really working hard on this as this months goal. By the end of the month, I will be off of the "stuff", and will survive on water, Crystal Light and home brewed Iced Tea. Any other drink ideas from my friends out there?
This will be one goal that I will be truly proud to accomplish, and I am on my way to success!
