I am on my fifth day without Diet Pepsi.
Yes, on purpose. And, yes, I realize that Lent is almost a year away; I'm doing this for my health, people. Well, that, and; I want to be able to say that I can do it: that I control my habit, it doesn't control me.
So far, I'm doing pretty well. Or, I was until this morning, when I woke up with what I suspect is a withdrawal headache. It's like my body has been humoring me for the past four days and only this morning realized that, hey; this bitch is seriously not going to give into the sweet, sweet nectar of the soda fountain gods...off with her head!
I'm pretty sure I will muddle through.
Supposedly, giving up soda will improve my overall diet since popular thinking suggests that the artificial sweeteners in diet soda cause people to crave more sugar or some such drivel; I have no idea if there is actual science to back that claim, but, I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. Also, I am really, really tired of watching my boobs grow exponentially to my age and, any little bit I can do to cut out crap that aids and abets them in their quest to take over the world is A-Ok with me.
So, yeah...I see a lot of ibuprofen in my immediate future. Also, Wall Street should see an impressive hike in stocks in the companies that produce tea bags.
