Why Diet Coke Is So Bad
Soda bottles & cans contain a chemical called BPA , which may alter hormones.
Increases your risk of type 2 diabetes
Increases your risk of having heart attack by 47%
The list goes on & on, soda is one of the worst drinks you can ever put into your body.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried to quit soda (it was so difficult) I was addicted to diet coke for a long time. I started drinking soda as a kid & all thru my 20’s.
How I quit :
I started drinking sparkling water.
I also started to research soda & I found out it’s really really bad for your health.
My husband doesn’t drink soda. He would remind me how bad it was whenever I wanted one.
I think back & really see how my mind was playing tricks on me. I literally would try to convince myself that I didn’t have an addiction to diet coke & that I could quit but the truth is quitting soda was extremely difficult for me. We all battle addictions it isn’t always drugs or alcohol it can be anything.
Some Of My Excuses
Once in a while is okay
I’ve had a rough day I deserve this diet coke
Just this one time
I’ll quit tomorrow
*When I was pregnant I quit soda for about 10 months but after she was born I started drinking it again.
Since January of this year I haven’t had Diet Coke. I must say I do crave it now & then, the temptation gets hard sometimes. But when I do crave one I always think about how long I’ve gone without it & I don’t want to mess up. I want my mind to be stronger than the soda.
It takes baby steps. I encourage you to find strength & quit anything that you know is unhealthy for you.
