Breaking my habit.
Some of you might know this, but I`m very addicted to Coca-Cola. I used to drink the normal version with sugar and all, but after I discovered Coca-Cola Zero, that has been my drug of choice. Eventhough this isn`t a secret, and has been going on for many years, I started seeing a pattern I didn`t like. I had a tendency to buy these 4 packs of big Coca-Cola`s because they`re much cheaper that way, and always had it available. Naturally, that way I would also drink much more. That means that the amount spend was absolutely horrific! So I decided to make a plan. I would not stop Coca-Cola completely, but stop bying into the house and have it too available. I can buy a Coke here and there for special occations and when I`m out (since I don`t drink alcohol), but never have it in the house. So far it`s gone really well, but I can tell that I have some sort of withdrawal - yes, you heard me! I have a terrible headache pretty much all the time and feel low on energy and tired. Some say that Coca-Cola is almost as hard to quit as cigarettes, but I guess that`s because it`s mostly about the actual habit and not so much the intake of coffeine or nicotin in my opinion. But I have to admit it`s hard. I`ve tried many times before, and decided to reward myself with someting I really want, that I maybe feel I can`t afford if I don`t save up the money I would normally have spent on Coke. So that`s my plan, and I think it`s going pretty well so far.
