A month off Coke

Well, not much else to say.

I haven’t touched Coke (cola that is) for a month now. It’s been very difficult but I had to quit for the sake of my health.

People always said I’d feel better without Coke. I think in many ways they’re right. I feel a sense of satisfication and accomplishment in sticking to a goal. I feel I’ve overcome a powerful demon of sorts. All that black sugar couldn’t have been good for me.

But I also feel sad.

Where there was once a cold can of Coke there’s now just a sad feeling.

I guess my body has yet to adjust to all the changes or maybe all that sugar helped numb those negative emotions like a drug.

Getting off Coke is really difficult, but I feel it’s something I have to do. It’s just one less external thing to control me.

I am a resident of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada who has blogged here for 20 years. I like to share my thoughts and feelings on my own online space. From 1998 until 2017 I worked as a journalist and I hope to use this website as an archive for all of my stories.
