Battling My Addiction To Coca-Cola
The first step to overcoming an addiction is admitting that you have a problem. I, Angel Dee, am addicted to Coca-Cola. I am currently trying to kick the habit and my withdrawals are brutal.
Now I in no way think that addiction is something to joke about. I actually take it very serious. I have know several people who have fought hard core addictions and it isn't easy. With that being said, I seriously believe that I am addicted to Coca-cola.
I decided that it was time to make some major lifestyle changes. I'm not getting any younger and if I want to be around to see my son grow up and have a family of his own I need to be healthy. My biggest problems are cokes and sweets.
If you talk to anyone I know they will tell you that I'd rather eat sweets then actual food. Dessert first please! But my addiction to cokes goes a little further than that. The first thing I do in the morning is pop open a coke for breakfast. Then throughout the day all I drink is coke. I love them! When you open a coke and take that first drink and the acid is so powerful that it makes your eyes winch is the best part. I decided the best thing was to eliminate cokes for a while until I can control the amount.
The first day was the hardest and I caved. I couldn't take it. I began to get a horrible headache and even felt like I was gonna die if I didn't get a coke soon. The next day went about the same, except I made it through without letting the craving get to me.
I am now on my 5th day with out a soda and I am super proud. It hasn't been easy.. On day two without a soda I felt physically ill. I was in pain and felt very nauseated. Day three was a little better but I was being the biggest bitch ever. Day four was a little easier but the bitchiness was still there. As for today, I guess we'll see how it goes.
I can honestly say that this is the hardest thing I have ever done! But I'm five days into it so I am not giving up. I just hope that my family can put up with me for the next couple weeks as I completely detoxify my body.
Have you ever felt addicted to any kind of food or drink?
