The Coke Chronic! Jaycee's 30 Day No Soda Challenge Day 13

I've been on the 30 Day No Soda Challenge and it's Friday the 13th! I'm working a long shift and the bottles were calling out to me this morning.

"Hi, Haven't seen you in a while Don't you miss me? "

The perspiration is slowly developing across my temples.

"No, I don't!" The lie tastes like a liver wrapped onion.

"I miss you! Are you suuuuuure you don't miss me just a lil bit?" The coke bottle coos.

Several beads have developed along my forehead and are now traveling southbound burning my eyes.

"No! I don't! I feel so much better without you. I feel so much lighter without you too!"

Now she's, did I just write she, I mean the Coke bottle is getting mad and frustrated.

"Who takes care of you! Who caresses those cold cold ice chips? Who watches all those Dodger games with you? ME! Have you forgotten?"

The Coke and Pepsi peoples are sending me sexxxy texts. Like don't you want some sugar?

Mmmmmm! Frutose Corn syrup! Ahhhhh! Carbonated Water! Ummmm Sodium and Red # 11

Ohhhhh the horror!

But I feel good! Real good!

BE Careful! BE Mindful! BE Prayerful!

Soda is liquid satan but I love it. I really have to watch myself sometimes I will drink 2 cokes in a row (12 oz) and the colder and stronger(when it burns your the better.

I can drink a 2 litter in less than an hour. Polish off a twelve pack in less than two days!


Kim said...

It's so addictive. I think they are still putting cocaine in it on the sneak tip..LOL

I now drink soda once a month, and when I do, it's diet Coke.

Mista Jaycee said...

Can you believe that Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew have more caffiene than Coke and Pepsi?
Not to mention Jolt and all the rest of the super caffs!

I seldom drink soda so can't really relate to this addiction. But hang in there. You'll lose a few pounds and feel much, much better when this is all over.

Also, very funny.

Mista Jaycee said...

Hey Sexy K,
Soda is like water for me. I gotta let it go cause it's got me.
But I'm sure there is something that you can relate to in there. Chips maybe...I know many who can't get past Derritos and Chips with Salsa. Chester Cheetah knows he got a fan in me. (smile)
Thanks for stopping by

Mr Daisy and Mista Jaycee! Two addicts together, all you need is SPORTS to complete your sordid picture!

Good luck trying to quit--Mr Daisy can't. (He's about at your level, too!)

Al Gore used to drink a whole 12-pack a day when he was running for President--sent his campaign aides out to FIND 12-PACKS OF COKE in the middle of the night like a common junkie!!!! :P

Mista Jaycee said...

I love the Lakers, The Raiders, The Angels and Dodgers. I route for Brazil and Senagal in the World Cup. I like to play chess and I can Quit this soda and so Will Mista Daisy (Da inner Sound Y'all) He will be successful!
Love you

LOL! I know how that feels...i've been off soda since last summer...Very hard in the beginning.

Kim said...

I'm also addicted to Snyde's Pretzels Sticks..I can only eat the sticks. I buy them like 3 times a week they are low in fact but bad, bad carbs and high in sodium, I believe they are what is going to kill me.

Coogie Cruz said...

I stay away from soda because of my fat ass...but now it's hard because my current roommate has over 30 20 oz bottles stocked up in the fridge I was like "Wtf" when I saw that. My momma is horrible with pepsi, she is literally addicted. Don't let there be no pepsi in the house....looord watch out.

Kudos for having the will power!

I am addicted to coke!

CurvyGurl ♥ said...

I feel for ya. I kicked the habit a couple of years ago and it was literally painful...caffeine withdrawal headaches are awful. I had it so bad that I would drink one for You can do it though :-)!

good luck!!!
i tried 2 do it on my own && was unsuccessful but then once basketball season came around it kinda gave me no choice. Now thats its over I still have the habit tho, like gettin juice or tea at fast food places && stuff. It sucks now but if u look up how bad soda really is for u you'll feel great about givin it up l0l


OHHHH NOOOOO. Not again!!! Cold Turkey....with headaches & flashbacks...evil coke giants...

Actually, I found for me it's the carbonation that I so enjoy, so I've been drinking Enviga - it's a carbonated green tea (caolorie burner) and I drink flavored sugar freesparkling water or club soda, try adding a lemon or lime in it :)

Mista Jaycee said...

Coke has a mellow sweetness like corn and Pepsi has more of a sugary sweetness. But I am not drinking it. I feel so much better.
