I'm not one of those people who drinks a soda every. single. day. I'm not addicted by any means. Okay, so maybe I had them more frequently than I thought, but 1 or 2 a week is certainly not addicted.
The worst thing about me drinking Coke is that I will get a craving for one every now and again. But even then, my cravings have never been bad. I would get a craving, crack open a Coke and be completely fine for another week or so.
One of my goals in my 101 in 1001 challenge was to not drink soda for a month. I have been working towards completing that over the past 30 days and I finally accomplished it yesterday! But let me tell you, in the middle it got a little tough.
My aunt bought me a "Share a Coke with Ashley" Coke bottle that has been staring at me for over 2 weeks now! It has been tempting to put it in the fridge and drink it, but I resisted.
Plus to top it off, as if my mid-month cravings weren't enough, I was supposed to finish my challenge in June. However, I found out my favorite limeade has Sierra Mist in it. Bummer. I had to start all over again!
Speaking of limeade though I found a wonderful recipe to make limeade soda free. Come back at the end of the month when I will be sharing my limeade post!
So anyway, now that I have completed a whole month without Coke, I don't think I feel much different. Sure I'll still have a Coke when I get a craving, or Cheerwine when I find it, but I don't think I'll drink one every week just because like I used to.
Well, there you have it. Being healthier and checking thins off my 101 list! Next up vegetarian for a week?!
Have you completed a no-soda challenge?
How often do you drink sodas?
