of the Great Diet Mountain Dew Embargo. It’s going pretty well. I guess. Just so you know, I’m addicted. Really and truly. I was drinking about 48 ounces at least of the poison every day. It’s a lot harder to quit than I thought it would be. I quit the habit every time I went to Europe or Central America (it isn’t available there, and I didn’t want to waste luggage space bringing my own–but believe me, I seriously considered it!) and then I would hop right back on the wagon every time I came home. I always joked about being addicted, but didn’t realize that it was physical as well as psychological. I have been doing a lot of research about it to help me just say now and drinking a lot of water. Right now I have a headache that I’ve had almost all week and I’m really shaky. I can’t imagine how hard it must be to quit smoking or an illicit drug habit. Just because caffeine is legal doesn’t make it safe!
If you have any tips or encouragement for me, I’d welcome them!!
