I've been in Texas the past couple of weeks, and I started home today now that I hope the roads are clear back home after last week's snowstorm. I woke up this morning (Monday morning) at 4:15 a.m. and couldn't go back to sleep. So I was on the road by 5:50. A couple of hours into my trip, I started getting sleepy. Since I had many more hours to drive, I needed a boost of caffeine, even though I didn't particularly want the Coke. So I allowed myself one Coke, which I made last all day -- through parts of Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi.
Since I plan to get plenty of sleep tonight, I'm hopeful I won't need any caffeine tomorrow. And I don't think the one Coke was enough to start me on the path to drinking them again. In fact, I plan to spend the rest of February just drinking water. I actually like water, so it's not a hardship. But it's something that makes me feel good about my health efforts.
Do you all have anything that you crave but can live without once you've given it up for several days?
