No pop for a year

Accomplished: June 1, 2008

Last June I decided I'd try to go a year without drinking pop, and as of today, I've succeeded! It was harder than I thought -- it seems like an eon ago that I last had any! I grew up drinking the stuff on a regular basis and it's amazing how, in the right context, you can really crave the stuff. Many afternoons at work I would normally have a can of pop, and it got to the point last year that I was having two cans a day. The problem is, it's not good for your teeth, and for me personally it tends to make me feel really low energy by 5:30 if I drink a pop in the middle of the afternoon and don't have anything else to eat. I have to admire people who aren't even tempted... that would be nice!
