Another bad habit
I've decided that I need to stop drinking Diet Coke. For the last 10 years I've drank approximately 3-4 cans a day, sometimes more. My doctor told me last October that I need to stop drinking soda. It has no nutritional value, whatsoever, and is made up of so many different chemicals. It's ruining my teeth and it's not good for me. A recent study has raised the possibility of a link between drinking soda and an increased risk of heart disease and metabolic syndrome, although the jury's still out on that one. So, as of 10:00 last Sunday night, I'm no longer drinking it. Wish me luck. I'm going to need it. I've had a horrible headache for two days and my head feels foggy. Ugh. This is going to be hard.
