Hey friends! I wrote a post about quitting sodas for my friend Jaima's blog! I'd love for you to check it out here: http://www.ringaroundtherosies.net/2012/08/quitting-soda.html.
Here is a little preview:
To start, I have to tell you about my husband. I guess it was about a month into dating, he told me that he used chewing tobacco. While I was thoroughly disgusted, I had already fallen in love with him. I told him that it was fine, but once we had kids, it had to stop. I knew in all honesty, that he’d likely never quit, especially if he really didn’t want to. I am so proud to say that 4 years later, with a two year old at home, my husband finally quit! I have never been so proud! I had been nagging at him since my mom was diagnosed with cancer, and even more after she passed away. I understood the addiction side—I’m addicted to sodas. I always thought that it wasn’t nearly as bad of an addiction, but since my husband quit, I decided to do some research to help convince myself to stop drinking soda.
Now, I LOVE cokes. It’s often one of the first things on my mind when I wake up– I need a fix. Terrible isn’t it?......
