W is for Without

WAn exploded can of Diet Coke led to a conversation I had with my friend and co-worker Jeremy today. We started talking about soda and he remarked how bad it is for you. I acknowledged this and told him that last summer I tried to give up pop cold turkey but only lasted about 2 weeks before I just couldn’t take it any more and had to have some pop. For the record, I drink only diet pop, not regular, and yes, I know that diet pop is just as bad as regular.

He suggested I try allowing myself to drink soda only 1 day a week (he suggested Sundays, but I think I am going to pick Saturdays). Once I get used to that, then maybe I can cut that 1 day out as well.

I’m currently drinking a Diet Dr. Pepper Cherry, and I’ll allow myself to have pop tomorrow. And then Sunday starts my new attempt at life WITHOUT pop.

Wish me luck.

Could this can of Diet Coke that froze and exploded lead me to a new life, soda free?

  1. I used to believe the stories of how awful xxx was (fill in the blank) and then a decade later, that was proved wrong. Now, I’m for moderation–which I suppose is the can a week. But really, we’ll die of something, right? Why not soda?

    I decided a while back that I was going to try just drinking decaf coffee and water, and I feel a whole lot better. I do have an occasional milkshake and drink lemonade and fruit juice, but haven’t had soda in I don’t know how long.
