Sometime during my sophomore year I discovered something wonderful: Diet Coke.
Now, I'm sure I had consumed diet coke sometime before my sophomore year - but it was during y sophomore year that I truly discovered it and somewhat became addicted to it.
Diet coke has been with me through good times and through bad. It goes perfectly with a bag of popcorn, a pepperoni pizza and nothing goes better with Mexican food than a big glass of diet coke. I can tell you the best place to get a Diet Coke and the best way to drink it (in a plastic bottle after it has been refrigerated overnight)
For years I have heard all of the reasons for not drinking diet coke. I know all of the side effects but I could never get rid of this love - until recently for some reason I decided it was time to give it up.
I initially began by just going down to one a day - It would be to hard to stop drinking it cold turkey - while this has worked for awhile I still feel that urge to take it out of my life completely.
So....I finally goodbye to Diet Coke last week - and I must say I have felt better - I can't really explain it but I have felt better - I don't have as many headaches, my throat feels better, I'm not as tired - it quite amazing. Hopefully I can keep this up.
Well I have to go now....I'm craving a Diet Coke.......................
