With the exception of half of one bottle that I downed with my migraine meds back in March, I haven't had a Diet Pepsi since I gave it up for Lent. Although this isn't my personal best (nine months sober, twice. Pregnant, both times), it still warrants a celebration. Unfortunately, when I celebrate, I like to drink Diet Pepsi....oh well.
I have paid attention to how I feel to see if giving up soda has had any sort of affect on my sugar addiction and have arrived at the conclusion that it does not; I still crave sweets like it is my job. I'm going to try using essential oils to battle the sugar demon, but I am not optimistic.
However, I am Diet Pepsi sober. Baby steps, I guess.
