Diet Coke detox

I’m still going strong on my mission to kick a heinous Diet Coke addiction, and so far, so good.

The intense headaches that I suffered with for most of the first week of my Diet Coke addiction detox are gone now, but after ten days, I’m definitely still craving Diet Coke.

I’m not sure if it’s an increased water intake or the elimination of the diet soda, but I’ve noticed a major positive change in my skin this week.

Now, let me give you a little backstory on my skin. I usually have a minor monthly hormonal breakout, but generally, my skin is normal. It’s not movie-star gorgeous or flawless by any means, but it’s normal.

I should say, It’s usually normal.

For the past four months or so it has been so terrible. I’ve had constant breakouts that I haven’t been able to remedy, and I’ve tried. I’ve tried everything!

Again, I have no idea if it can be attributed to getting off the diet soda but my skin has made a dramatic transformation this week. The texture is so much smoother and the acne and inflammation has all but completely disappeared.

Of course, in the place of the Diet Coke, I’m drinking water—much more water than I was drinking before.

Regardless, I’m happy to see such an immediate positive change.

P.S. in case you’re wondering, yeah, I’m still craving pop like crazy. CRAZY.
