I’m pretty boring, and actually I like it that way.
I don’t smoke.
I don’t drink alcohol.
I don’t gamble.
I don’t do drugs. Well, other than my prescription anti-depressant, but that is a necessity not for recreational purposes.
My weakness is soda. Or pop. Whatever you want to call it. I gave it up for a couple of years, and after a while I didn’t even miss it. But then I went back to school, and started working late evening hours. The fatigue started to catch up with me. Out of laziness, I resorted to the occasional bottle of Mountain Dew or can of Coke to keep me awake. Over the years it evolved to the point where I almost couldn’t get through a day without a soda. The worst was when I worked at a company which provided its employees with all the pop, milk, and coffee they could drink – for free.
Last Saturday I decided I’d had enough. I drank my last bottle of Mountain Dew in the morning. Since then I have ALMOST caved on several occasions, but I have successfully resisted for more than one week. Now there’s an accomplishment I can drink to.
But maybe just water.
