Caffeine is a drug

Oh yes, yes it is. And I’m a huge addicted.

For years, since I can remember, I’ve loved my diet soda. I can drink 2 to 3 2-liters a day, by myself. Not to mention my coffee and tea.

So recently the doctor suggested I cut it out. Well, actually STRONGLY suggested.

On 2/23, I quit, cold turkey.

It’s been a struggle. And I never really realized how addicted I was. I’ve been like a junkie. If I go to the gas station it’s hard to resist grabbing a bottle of diet soda.

I knew it was going to be hard, but not this hard. I’ve been spending a lot of time in bed detoxing. I’m exhausted, irritable, shaky, headaches, had an upset stomach. So I’ve just been sleeping a lot.

I’m days in, but it’s not any easier than day one. And I won’t be going back either. After 30 days of no caffeine, I will only be allowing myself 1-2 cans of soda a week. If I even do that. After going thru this hell, I’m not sure I want to chance becoming addicted again.

Hmmmm, I wonder if there are any Caffeine Addicts Anonymous groups around, lol. If not, there needs to be.

But when it’s all over, I’m healthier and that’s what counts most.
