No more drugs or drinking? Or kicked a different kind of addiction like no more fast food?

I quit drinking pop last New Year's Eve and am still holding to it. I was drinking almost a 6-pack of pop a day, until I heard that if the average pop drinker would cut one pop per day out of their diet, they would give up in sugar, the weight of a semi-truck tire. That was all it took and I've been pop free ever since. Of course, I've doubled my caffeine intake.

I have been caffiene free for a year now. A week or so ago, I let myself have Mountain Dew b/c I had to get some stuff and done and was tired. Big mistake. It left me wired. I remembered why I gave it up.

Hehehe, nope no pledge of sobriety! I still drink and I still enjoy it! Sorry...a little off topic, but I thought I'd drop in and see what everyone was kicking. Since I didn't have anything I thought I'd express what I wasn't. :)

Ugh...smoking...I am a smoker as well and that is one habit I will probably never break. How long have you been smoking?

The only addiction I've struggled with all of my life is food. I've dieted and dieted, but no matter how long I diet, I never lose my desire for the wrong foods, and I never develop a positive attitude about developing a healthy lifestyle.

One of my very good friends has encountered the same issue. What foods are your weakest to stay away from?

I had my most recent drink on October 5th 2002. I had finally had enough. It was difficult at first. As time went by each day it got easier. The hardest part was facing everyday without some form of crutch. Everyday I gained a little more strength than the day before. I have been through a great deal of things in sobriety. Amazingly, I have stayed sober. I am glad I stayed at it and did the work required of me. I am a different person today than I was then. I have accomplished more than I ever have. I continue to improve with time. Life is truley better than it has ever been even though bad things still happen. I don't regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. I don't have to continue to stare back at it either. Time does heal all wounds. I look forward to each passing day but I try to remember to enjoy today. Good luck on your journey. I pray you stay sober for another day. If you can do that you have the key to a lifetime of sobriety. One day at a time. God Bless
