Hi, my name is Candice and I'm a dietpepsiaholic..

I have recently been thinking and working really hard on my self improvement. There is a whole long list that I won't bore you with at this time but here is one I've started with...

I have given up caffeine. I have never gone this long without a soda! I know sad, right?
It's been a little over a week and the terrible headaches are starting to subside. I've been doing this trying to listen to what my body wants instead of my head thing lately and I started realizing this thing I love ( the almighty D.P.) was something I did out of habit or craving more than thirst and enjoyment.

Two things I realized. First, that after I drank it, I didn't feel very good. Now, I love Diet Pepsi the most when I haven't had it in a long time and I'm actually really thirsty but when I drink it as much as I was, it didn't even taste good anymore.

Second, I know that struggling this much to come off of a beverage can not be good for me or even okay for me! I think that once I get this under control I might occasionally have a non caffeinated soda but for right now they are outta here.

  1. Wow, good for you! It's hard to kick a habit, ESPECIALLY soda! When I worked at Hogi Yogi we got free sodas so pretty much all day every day I was sipping away and I felt yucky. I didn't even realize why I felt run down until I quit my job and stopped drinking soda! It's a huge difference even though it's hard at first. Good luck!! :)
