So Long Soda

Forgive me Pepsi Co, it has been 11 days since my last Diet Dr. Pepper.

Yes, you read that right I have given up soda... again. This is my most successful attempt at giving up that sugary sweet, life giving nectar.

As you can tell I still love my soda, but I don't like the chemicals and the fact that I don't drink nearly enough water. So "So long soda."

It has not been as tough as I thought... switched to one large cup of coffee a day. BTW I drink my coffee with a straw which made Mems laugh and people on Twitter scoff... but I don't want it to stain my teeth and it cools faster that way. I also drink green tea and an unsweet tea from QT if I really need caffeine.

So far so good. No headaches from withdrawal. It's more just a matter of changing my habits. I've read it takes 21 days to break a habit... so I have 11 days to go.

Who knows if it goes well I'll give up something else for 21 days till I break.


  1. well, I am far from a supporter of Pepsico so money not going to them is definitely music to my ears...may I suggest some other beverage options. Dasani since you want to drink more water. Minute Maid for your juice needs. Full Throttle coffee tastes great when dranken with straw...I even have a box of straws I'm willing to donate. If you are into tea there are good brands out there like Nestea, HonestAde, and Gold Peak. Let me know how I can support you in this endeavor going forward.

  2. Thanks, I've been making use of my Brita water filter and refillable thermos.

    I'm also kind of obsessed with the lipton mandarin orange green tea. I brew 3 or 4 cups a day now.
