Missing You...


I'm trying to give up drinking soda (specifically Diet Coke)...mainly for health reasons...been feeling like a little bloated lately, and the caffeine really isn't good for the nerves. So I've replaced my beloved Diet Coke with water....mmmm, so tasty!

It's DAY 3 of being soda free....and the headaches are FINALLY starting to go away. The first day was easy, but yesterday was a real b*tch. The goal is to make it through a week...baby steps, y'all.

As an added bonus, I go home with a little bit more money in my pocket....yay!

I gave up sodas a while ago and certainly fell better for it (with the exception os Sierra Mist which I drink when in the US as we can't get it here and it's a treat!)

I'm also trying to cut out tea, too, but when I drink about 15 cups a day, this one is going to be a bit harder!

I love diet soda. I love the taste. When I have a choice I pick Diet Pepsi, but I also enjoy Diet Coke. I know its not good to drink too much, so here is my rule of thumb. I don't buy soda to keep at home. I only drink it at restaurants, AND I must have already had at least one glass of water that day to allow myself to order soda at a restaurant.

try sprucing up your water with lemon, or infusing it with cucumber or tangerine or anything you enjoy.

it makes it do down a lot easier.

or drink wine. there's water in it, right?

I'm sorry, does that say "Bacon" on that can? I'd give it up too. Pronto.

Been there. It's hard at first, especially if all your friends love drinking soda. But it gets easier, especially when you start forgetting how soda taste like.

Best of luck to ya! I'd give up Diet Coke in an instant since I hate diet soda, but you'll have to pry my regular Coca Cola out of my cold, dead hand. ;-)

I may soon follow your lead on this topic. I'm consuming way too much Diet Coke, too!

I drink one large fountain soda a day, it's terrible and the real thing, lots of empty calories, but I hate water, fish fuck in it!

I always drank loads of water but the husbear has got me hooked on coke! You know, Coca Cola! I can only drink it extremely cold and I am getting to like it a lil bit too much! So I think I need to go back to drinking water and eating 5 bars of chocolate a day :-)
