I’m congratulating myself today because 100 days has passed and I am still committed. I stopped to bring my mom a “real” coffee (as she puts it, not like the coffee in the rehab) and I was really tempted to get a skim latte with Splenda. I have not had a diet soda or any soda or any artificial sweeteners in 101 days today. The urge was strong but I did not give in. It’s not that having a Splenda once will kill me, I just know that if I give in once, it will be that much easier to give in again and I am really committed to changing this. I used a minimum of 3-5 packs a day of some kind of sweetener in my coffee or whatever, for 30 years or so.
I am still incredibly stressed but I am not quitting. Now that’s progress for me.
