desperately wanted some to drink! I, literally, had to increase my walking pace to walk right pass the vending machine!!! I was in a mall and kept thinking how nice it would be to have a cold coke or 7-up… I think that it was because I was tired, thirsty, and hungry.
I was thinking of a story that my Grandpa told me about quitting smoking. He used to smoke and he tried really hard to quit. The only thing that worked for him was to buy large containers of peppermint candies and keep eating them everytime he had a craving for a cigarette.
I’m going to try drinking cranberry juice every time I want a pop. Cranberry juice is sweet so I’d still be getting a sweeet taste, and it’s supposed to be good for you. I’ll get the light stuff.
As for the fizze taste, I’m going to keep drinking Pellegrino. Hopefully, little by little my cravings will finally disappear.
Drinking pop is addictive, but it’s also been marketed as a ‘social’ drink. Something that you can drink at a party, or on your way out the door, in a hurry to get some energy, or in lieu of drinking alcohol; perhaps this is why I’m having a difficult time.
I used to drink lots of pop, probably 2L a day! It was my “coffee”.... It was probably worse than drinking coffee too, not only for tooth decay and unneccessary calories, but it was cold, cheap, readily available, portable, and easy to drink quickly, unlike a hot coffee.
Typing this I can still think of the sugary yet distinct taste of Coke.
I always preferred Coke over Pepsi and could often figure out which was Coke during a blind taste taste. If Coke wasn’t available then Pepsi would be the next best thing, then 7-Up.
Ok, getting very close to the week countdown! Only 2 more days to go. 6 years ago
