I fell off the wagon while I was in Michigan, but for the past three days I haven’t had any soda, and in the days before that I only had maybe one can and one large from a fast food place. So I’ve cut down quite a bit. BUT I’ve also been drinking more black coffee.

Yesterday was my first day without soda. Again. I did feel tempted to buy one on the way home from work.
The longest I’ve ever been without one is 6 months, so I know I can do this.
My reasons for wanting to stop now center around concern for my teeth and my overall health. I feel lousy after drinking soda, and due to changes in my teeth and gums caused by birth control pills and overcrowding (still need wisdom teeth out) I’m much more concerned about my oral health. If I can help it (and I can) I’d like to keep my own teeth for as long as possible and in the best shape they possibly can be. Dental repairs are not cheap!
So here I go again. Today is day two.
5 months! Holy crap!
I’m still going strong. :-)
Today marks three months! There was a time when I could barely make it three days without a soda. I’m very proud of myself.
I’m going to continue the good work and update this goal with my progress, but I am marking it as done. I’m trying to free up space on my list, and this goal is as good as done right now. If I ever “relapse”, it will definitely go back on my list.
Good luck to everyone working on this goal! You can do it! : )
Just under 3 months. : )
I can see that, for me, getting a soda is definitely linked to the thrill of spending money, like I thought it was. When I go to the store and walk past a vending machine on my way out, I feel a kind of excitement about getting near it and a little urge to put some money in. Thankfully completing this goal, keeping my money, and not filling my body with aspartame have become more important to me. : )

Over 9 weeks now! There have been a few times I’ve thought about getting fast food and a soda, but I haven’t. : )
