Friday not so foolishness

Just wanted to post a personal happy dance.

I am 28 days soda-free.

This is a big deal for me. The longest I have ever gone before was 6 weeks. I am two weeks off my all time record.

It is killing me. I almost broke 4 or 5 times now. But why would I want to do that. Far easier to just keep going and drinking ANYTHING but soda than to keep restarting and doing this to myself. I am drinking iced tea to beat the band.

I have learned that tea in plastic bottles, unless packaged by Galliker's Dairy, SUCKS. Glass bottled tea is better. Tea made in the iced tea maker is best.

Way to go! Your bones will thank you.

They say that the first 28 days are the hardest when you're trying to break a habit. I hope all of that is past you now and that days to come are smooth sailing!

That's great, Rachel! I am not completely soda-free, but I'm down to only a few a week as a treat. Do you drink something else for caffeine or are you caffeine-free, too? I really like hot and cold tea for caffeine, but not with sugar. One large cup of tea in the morning and I'm good to go.

Congratulations! :)

WTG Rachel! I did that about a year ago but now I'm hooked on Country Time Lemonade ;o)

If you're off of it long enough and try to go back, it will taste different. At least that's what I found and I still don't drink very much soda anymore.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
