It’s only early days but I’m sure I have the strength to do this 🙂
It’s been three long days. It’s like all my family are drinking Coke all day long…or am I just very much more alert to that soft fizz as the bottle opens.
At dinner last night I watched the beads of condensation build on the outside of the bottle . Then I was absorbed by the mesmerising dribble as a drop collected others on its trip to the bottom of the bottle. Small bubbles rose like floating helium balloons , weaving their way to the top of the glasses filled with this nectar. My glass was brim filled with a clear cold liquid known as water. I don’t need as many glasses of this as I did Coke. I do have a little headache ( probably missing the caffeine and sugar maybe).
Today was so hot. Perfect weather for an ice cold thirst quenching glass or 4 of Coke. I was tempted to just have a mouthful but instead I had a glass of iced water and some grapes. Then, I look over and there’s Ally swigging the last dribble from a bottle. A slice of watermelon and I coped ok. My family think I’m a bit angry…but I’m not , it’s just they aren’t being kind ha ha ha couldn’t be me…NOOOOOO !!
Dinner tonight was pizza. This would normally be accompanied by a few large glasses of that delicious beverage. But, there in my glass was water. Brian had two glasses of coke….yes lol I was counting.
Now it’s our regular Friday night watching TV consuming dips and chips washed down with at least 2 more glasses of coke for me. I’m foregoing the dips cause I’m not yet able to do it on water only. My treat was a Cadbury Favourites flake. Enjoyed it immensely and can still taste it in my mouth :)) Yes there is still some sugar in that chocolate 4g but a 600ml bottle of Coke has 65 g and on a Friday I’d drink conservatively a litre SCARY THOUGHT after this research !!
I know this will be a positive thing for me 🙂
