Today is my second day of not drinking Diet Mt. Dew. Not a drop since Monday.
I had water when I was getting ready this morning, which was not very tasty (I don’t drink coffee, except for rare occasions when I drink the ones that taste like milkshakes and definitely not like coffee).
I have a water bottle, some of those Crystal Light mini-mixes and tea. I had a slight headache this morning, but had a cup of hot tea (and some Thin Mints somebody left as a present!). The hot tea gives me a caffeine boost, without all the crap added in, plus I picked a green tea mix so I get added extra antioxidants.
It also helped to have my mug of hot tea there while I plug away, because that’s what I always had with my Dew, something to give you a pick-me-up as you worked.
Granted, I do miss the near-instantaneous caffeine rush of the soda. But I’m not missing scrounging for change because I don’t have a can here or the crash I’d get in the afternoon. Granted I’m just tired, but I think I won’t be as tired as I normally would be.
I’m giving myself probably three more days before I feel better overall a bit, and hopefully in a week or two, I won’t even think about it that much.
