Quitting my Addiction

I'm addicted to Diet Pepsi.

Love the stuff. Crave the stuff. May be mildly addicted to the stuff.

I'm quitting. I know the stuff is bad for me what with the chemicals, artificial sweeteners, even the caffeine. So I am making a solid commitment to stop drinking the stuff. I've done this before, and lasted a few months before caving and diving back into it with a vengeance. I've been good though, its been almost three weeks since my last one, but every time I have something salty or cheesy I get this urge to give in.

On the plus side, if that is the extent of my addictions than I guess I'm going to be okay. Hopefully if I give it up long enough my body will forget how damn good it is and I will stop craving.

Sorry, I know this is a boring post, and that I've been a crappy blogger lately. things have been super crazy and I feel like all I have time for when I get home at night is to eat dinner and go to bed.

I have today off though, one of the perks of teaching in a public school system. Even better? I have Monday off because I took a personal day before I realized it was already a three-day weekend. Even better than that? Drew has Monday off too. Granted we'll probably do something lame like put up drywall or work on our upstairs bathroom, but it's an extra day together, and for that I am grateful...until he starts getting on my nerves, then I will curse myself for taking the day off.


  1. I haven't had Soda since July! I used to drink Pepsi like it was going out of style. It was hard to stop at first but now it's not too bad at all. By the way, not sure if I ever said this to you or not, but wanted to say congrats on getting a job in the same school district! Sounds like it's awesome!

  2. Good job on giving up pop! (or whatever you call it up there...)
    I hope you are enjoying your long weekend!

  3. Hopping over from Comment Love Sunday on FTLOB!

    Good for you on quitting soft drinks. I quit last year and I will say, from experience, the first two weeks are the hardest. I haven't gone back but I will confess to still having one cup of coffee every morning. I do this more for my family and my co-worker's sakes than for my benefit. :)
