I quit caffeine. For someone who swears they weren't addicted (and I maintain I don't think I really was...), it was a big deal decision. But, as of now, I haven't had caffeine since just before Christmas. I think that's been long enough I can actually say it's stuck.
Things that helped included Isaac quitting at the same time and getting rid of all products in our house and then we just...stopped. I'm pretty sure both of us assumed we'd start up again, but yesterday we both marveled that it's been as long as it has. And it's been relatively easy. Ish. I've missed it. A little. But I've started drinking more water (which, soda aside, is a HUGE deal for me). But I haven't missed it as much as I thought I would.
My drug of choice is fountain cherry coke (or vanilla *i'mlookingatyoucaferio*). NOTHING beats a fountain coke. It just is the best. I prefer that over cans, hands down. But you can't get fountain caffeine free. But still. Between the caffeine free Dr. Peppers and Cokes in our garage and fountain Sprite, I've been making do. And my soda consumption has dwindled. Which I KNOW is good. I would tell you all how great I feel, but our air quality has been so bad lately, that I don't know if I'd know how good feels if it slapped me in the face. So we'll just assume I do until spring. Spring! Sonic season! Sniff. I hadn't thought about Sonic season! The most glorious time of the year. I think I'll be getting to know different flavored Sprites REALLY well...
(it's all been done, bnl)
