Willing to work for caffeine.

Today has been a bit rough. I have not had any soda for almost three days now. I did not set out to give it up. I simply ran out of soda and decided that I should not buy anymore. I've been noticing that the kids have taken an interest in how much soda I drink. They've been asking why I drink so much coke and why they can't have any. It's getting harder to convince myself that soda is not having a negative effect on my body. It's so bad for the teeth and I don't dare to think about where all that sugar is going. I don't know how long I will be able to hold out though. I'm incredibly tired all the time and am having caffeine-withdrawal headaches. When I told H how long I've gone without soda, he asked if that was a good thing. I told him, "Well, it's not fun. That's for sure."

Well, you're right about the teeth thing... my grandpa and uncle are both orthodontists, and for some of their younger patients, they'll put a tooth in a glass of Coke. By the time their visit is over, there is already visible damage!

I have faith that you'll be able to do it... my dad got really hooked on Dr. Pepper for a couple months and realized the same thing you are. He was able to do it -- start cutting the Cokes with Caffeine Free Cokes, maybe half and half or even more. Good luck babe!
