Over the course of the last month, I’ve been faced with having to give up another one of my vices, Soft Drinks.
Like an old friend, soft drinks have always been a part of my life. I didn’t drink them all the time, but they were always around. Even after I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I switched to diet soft drinks so I could at least have one every once in a while. Well, not any more.
A few weeks ago, I began to notice that the soft drinks that I liked, diet pepsi and coke zero, just didn’t taste good anymore. I thought maybe the asthma inhaler I used earlier in the day was causing the nasty taste. So, I gave it a few days, and tried the soft drinks again, and I had the same problem. They just tasted horrible.
So, rather than try to figure out whether it was the inhaler or one of the 4 other new medications that my doctor had started me on that was causing my soft drinks to taste funny, I said goodbye to them
And if sparing myself the nasty taste wasn’t a good enough reason to give up the soft drinks, there’s always the money saved and the few extra pounds lost. 🙂
Now I just need some healthy alternatives. Any suggestions? Comment Please.
