Getting clean

I have suffered for some time from an addiction to coke. My own parents first introduced me to it, and my boyfriend is the most frequent user I know. But now, away from all the pressure at home, I am working on kicking the habit.

Oh, I'm sorry. Silly [shift] key. I meant to say Coke, of course. I've only had it twice since I've been here, and neither was out of any real desire for the nasty stuff, which is so bad for you between the sugar, caffeine, and carbonation. The day after I arrived in France, when Françoise's brother Michel visited, we had apéritifs and I preferred Coke to the alternative of pastis that was offered to me. Then when we went on our 25km hike and stopped in a bar to get out of the rain, I ordered one for the sake of having something to drink and because I wasn't sure a bar in Molles would have tea or apricot juice. So that's 18 days I've been off the stuff and I'm not looking to have any more for a while.

How do you feel about pop/soda/fizzy drinks?
