I didn’t want to jinx myself by announcing it here before I did it, but I’ve decided to give up my Diet Coke habit once and for all. I’m not saying I’ll never drink it again, but certainly not in the massive quantities in which I’d been drinking it. And since last Wednesday, I haven’t had a drop.
You see, last Tuesday night I went to the grocery store to return my myriad of bottles and cans and was given back $5.70 (i.e., $0.10/can or bottle). Somehow, seeing that huge figure (and the ginormous bag of bottles and cans) really did a number on my psyche … causing me to just go cold turkey last Wednesday.
I simply don’t want to be putting those nasty chemicals into my body and I feel much, much better without it.
I admit, it was weird to go out to eat and not order it (it’s my go-to beverage of choice) … but unsweetened iced tea and water are just fine and a helluva lot better for my body, to boot.
