Well, it’s now been 16 days without soda. And, I’ve gotta say, hasn’t been much of a problem.
I think it comes down to Want. What I mean is, in the past I’d wanted to quit drinking soda, but I didn’t Want to; didn’t feel the absolute need to. Now, however, I do, because it just seems impossible (for me, anyhow) to put so much shit in my body. Soda isn’t the equivalent of smoking cigarettes, but it’s probably the liquid equivalent. Meaning, if you’re itching to put absolute crap into your system, soda’s the A#1 way to go.
Thus far, I’d say the biggest adjustment has come in finding an alternative beverage. I’ve been drinking lots of iced coffee, but come day’s end it makes me saggy. The boost is great … for a spell. Then, blech. Out.
Maybe it’ll wind up being water?
