You Say Addiction and I Say Affliction:
In an effort to be more aware of my bad habits I have decided that sipping a Coca~Cola all day long is a decidedly bad habit. I just love the surge of sugar coursing through my system injected on a steady schedule. I freely admit to having my first drink before noon and then a refresher shortly there after. Lunch? “I’ll have a Coke with that.” Then it’s time for the afternoon Coke and smoke break. For evening I sometimes enjoy a glass of wine if it’s appropriate but of course I’ll need a Coke nightcap before I officially retire for the evening. People say, “How can you possibly sleep?” Quite soundly as a matter of fact. Caffeine is the culprit. It’s every bit as evil as heroin or nicotine and yes, I am an addict. I venture to say that I have consumed more of the swill lately than I have actual water. It's beginning to take a toll on my waistline, for which I have radically halted my intake immediately. GREEN TEA! Such a simple substitution.
