Can you believe it, I gave up diet coke almost a year ago. And apart from the occasional sip from one of the children’s drinks I haven’t touched it.
And have I missed it? I’m not sure. I drink gallons of light ginger beer instead. And when I have had the odd sip of diet coke, I didn’t love the taste so much I had to drink more.
And do I feel better for it? I’m not sure about that either. I used to feel ok before.
To be honest, I think the only reason I haven’t started drinking it again is because when I gave it up I had the most awful headache for two weeks. And the thought of putting myself through that again is deterrent enough.
Though, if I couldn’t drink ginger beer I’d be seriously tempted. I’m not one of those people who can drink water and herbal teas all the time (not that I don’t mind the occasional peppermint tea and glass of water, as long as it is only occasional!).
What’s the most difficult thing you’ve had to give up?
