The craving isn’t as bad as yesterday. I still feel like I could fall off the wagon if I’m not careful.
Tea again. I think this will make it a little easier to kick the habit. I haven’t had any bad headaches, even after doing a ride on the trainer last night (5 hill accelerations, if you’re interested). My short term goal is to ween off of the caffeine altogether by the weekend. If I can make that happen, I think the next step – removing basic temptations – will be easier.
Funny that getting off of caffeine isn’t the hard part. I’m sure coffee drinkers take more in than I ever did with Diet Cokes; but that was never the issue. I still don’t know what was in that stuff that had such a grip on me.
I wonder if having a regular Coke will be a problem. I avoid it anyway because of the calorie count. Something like 250 in a 20oz bottle. That’s a lot of sugar! They could probably take a third of that out and it would still taste good.
