They* say that it takes 28 days to break a habit.
Today marks the 28th day with no coke (I use coke to mean all forms of soda or pop, Whatever you call it, I call it coke) for me. For the most part I only drink water now days, though every once in awhile I'll have a lemonade or a cherry limeade.
The first 4 days were BRUTAL, I had headaches that made me want to give in so badly I could hardly stand it. Lucky for me Natalie and Nate were here to distract me on those days.
About two weeks in I was craving a coke an actual LARGE real COKE with yummy SONIC ICE, I was alone and thought about Sonic, that when I had my first lemonade. And it was wonderful, but not a coke.
I am mostly okay with it now, even though yesterday driving home from Norman I so wanted to go and push the shiny red button at Sonic and order a Dr.Pepper. But, I didn't!
Wednesday marks 30 days and will be a 1o1 achievement (I promise to update soon, I really have been keeping track or real paper). And I said that I will celebrate Thursday with a GIANT ROUTE 44 COKE with easy ice from SONIC (be still my heart). But, in all reality I think that I am going to stick to my guns and not get readdicted to caffeine.
I am not saying that coke is horrible, but I think all things should be done in moderation, and for now while I start (talking about) running I think it is best that I drink as much water as possible and as little coke as possible.
I'll be sure to let you know when I indulge in the pure wonderful bliss of a Styrofoam cup with the perfect little pieces of ice and fountain coke again!
*I'm entirely sure who "they" are but they sure do have lots of opinions on lots of things and most people seem to take most of what they say to heart!
