Hey!  I think you're right.  I  know when I've had to fast in the past (I'm a poet) I always felt better.  I think I'll try to have a clean eating weekend.  It's worth a try!

Maybe that's why I'm drinking so much soda?  Hmmm....I think I'll try to skip the Benadryl over the weekend and see how I do.  I hate taking medicine!  It was the only thing that kept me from waking up with a scratchy throat, runny nose and sneezing.

I know this is kind of old but...Claritin is loratadine. Just FYI. You should definitely try the Zyrtec, it won't make you sleepy like the Benadryl.

Hey - thanks for the info.  I'll try the Zyrtec.  I don't think the allergies are ever going to go away!!!   :)

Allergies are suck. I rarely have them but when I do, I feel your pain. I can't imagine having them all of the time! I don't blame you for trying to medicate through the night... it's kind of hard to sleep when you can breathe or you're sneezing.

How's the kola kickin' going?

Not too good!  I really need to stop making excuses and just stop drinking it!  I have some Fiji water in my cabinet.  Gonna get it and drink it right now.  My stomach hurts so bad!!!   ???

Okay - I've made some significant progress this week.  I broke the 8:30 a.m. Pepsi habit.  I put that Fiji water on my desk and drank it until lunch, then had the Pepsi.  I'm getting better.  Slowly but surely, I will kick this habit!!!

Small victory, but I feel great about it!!!
 ;D

Well...the doctor told me to cut out carbonated drinks, so I guess I'll have to expedite my plan to give up soda, huh?  This will be hard, but if I want to get better, I need to do as I'm told.  I will start this weekend.  I figure I'll cut the consumption tomorrow by half, and then nothing on Saturday.  Wish me luck!

Oh man... the doc told you to cut out sodas, eh? That's certainly a good motivator to get rid of them in your diet. I don't buy any sodas and really have only drank them when at parties or get-togethers where people provide free sodas. I bet that if you just get them out of your house and around you at work, you can keep them "out of sight, out of mind." Good luck on that and getting better!!

ONLY 1 DIET COKE TODAY!!!  And that was because I was eating out and their water is questionable and their tea is terrible.  The safest thing seemed to be a soda. They didn't have bottled water or anything, so I felt safer with 12 oz. of chemicals!  (ha ha)

The best thing is - I'm not suffering!  I actually went all day without one earlier this week and I survived!  I can beat this!!

Woo Hoo!!!
