Ever kick a habit you like?!

I am so addicted to Dr. Pepper. It's pretty much all I ever drink and has been for over 20 years. I absolutely LOVE that stuff. However, over the years I've also said that if water wasn't so boring and flavorless maybe I could drink it. Well I have finally discovered Crystal Light in STRAWBERRY flavor and it is really good. Hey, I just might be able to kick an old habit! Soooo... JUST FOR FUN... How 'bout you? What's your "habit story"?

  • I used to drink lots of soda, but now I pretty much never do. The only time I have a soda is if we order pizza and then I want a diet root beer with it. I really don't miss soda though. Now I'm giving up artificial sweeteners completely.

  • Espresso. I just LOVE IT TO DEATH. But Im over 40 and if I drink more than 2 cups of anything caffeinated other than 2 cups regular coffee in the morning I DO NOT sleep at night. The only caffeine I get is my 2 cups of coffee in the a.m. I used to drink about 20 shots of espresso a day. Getting off it was hard due to the headaches from lack of caffeine. Iv also stopped biting my nails I was always a biter. Mom used to harass me endlessly and beg me to stop. When she died suddenly 3 years ago I just stopped doing it. Now I have nice long natural nails. I have moments Id like to bite them but seem to be able to resist.

  • Cigarettes. When I knew I wanted to TTC my first, I quit cold turkey and never looked back...but damn I loved smoking. Now I don't even have the urge to anymore, but missing "smoke breaks" at work or while we were out before they banned smoking in all public places was awful. LOL

  • I use to drink gallons of pepsi every day. I am not joking either. DH and I took 2 liters to work, plus drank more when we got home every single day! In 07 I was laid off and decided to diet. Thats when I began drinking water. Now its what I drink 99% of the time. I'll have a pepsi once in awhile but its only one maybe two 20oz bottle in a week. Water with Lemons in it can break up the monotony of drinking only water. I do like the crystal lights as well. Propel water is also yummy. I especially love their grape flavor.

  • Yes I did. Took me years but in the end I was successful.

  • Smoking. I kicked the habit, but I did enjoy smoking. I know it is taboo, but I enjoyed smoking.
