Wow. I am surviving.
15 more days and I can finally get to taste soda again!
Oh, how I missed the carbonated treasures and how its cold bubbles massages its way down my throat. Then finally getting the thirst-quenching feeling and the burp!
Just thinking about it makes me feel all giddy! 🙂
Today’s Daily Prompt made me double think my addiction for sodas.
(See previous post)
I suddenly got scared that it might just get worse and my kidney will fail me soon.
Since I’m really having a hard time giving up on this habit,
the least I can do is minimize my craving for it.
Good thing yesterday was Ash Wednesday, which signifies the start of the season of Lent.
Every year I always choose one thing to abstain from doing for forty days as a penitence.
So this year, I choose to abstain from sodas (dark or otherwise).
I also use this challenge as an excuse to use the Milestone Widget (see the sidebar. :))
as a countdown tool until Easter Sunday when I can finally drink soda again!
Okay. So this is dropping the habit cold turkey.
But it’s just for forty days right?
Hopefully by the end of forty days, I will:
– save money
– fulfill one religious duty; and
– learn that I can live without drinking soda (too much)
I can do this.
Lord, help me.
