Dreaming of Bubbles

If you haven't been paying attention, I have given up soda at least for the month of April. I'm on my sixth day of being soda free and apparently its been weighing heavy on my mind. Last night in my dream, I was having a Diet Coke thinking nothing of it. Just enjoying it's bubbly fizziness when my brother gave me a look and pointed to the soda. I panicked! I had screwed up. How on earth was I drinking a soda when I had committed to go without for the whole month?! I was really upset about it. You can imagine my relief when I woke up in the morning and realized that I'm still on track. Actually it was so real that it took a while to realize that it was only a dream.

Soda Free Update: Almost 6 days now. I ate a burger today and it was so weird to not have a soda to go with it. The headaches seem to be gone. I'm still a bit more tired than I was before the soda fast but it seems to be getting better. Thanks for the encouragement.

I guess I'm aware of that subconsciously!

I quit soda in college and it's probably one of the best lifestyle changes I've ever made. Every once in a while I get a craving for a Coke, but usually it's just a special treat now - which is really the way it should be! (Actually, drinking a Coke now will often give me a headache - good incentive to stay away.)

Good luck with your goal!!

With the money you'll save this month, you can really stock up at CostCo next month.
