5 and half years ago I successfully kicked the habit. Then it slowly crept back until in 2008 I was as bad as ever. May 2008 I kicked the habit again, made easier that time around due to bad morning sickness while pregnant with my son. I stayed off Coke for the entire pregnancy and while breastfeeding. April 2010 it started to creep back into my diet again and now I find myself right back where I started.
Going cold turkey leads to severe headaches. Easing off it slowly hasn’t worked. What on earth is in this stuff that I crave it so much?! It must be something to do with taste, because Pepsi does not sate the cravings at all – it has to be the real thing.
So, I find myself steeling for another battle with the big bad carbonated sugary beverage. 20 months ago
