My Addiction battle

Hey everyone, I hope you’re all well and good and that you’ve had a cracking week!

So today I want to talk to you about my caffeine addiction. It started when I lost my job due to medical reasons and I started to comfort eat. I then got into drinking coke and before I knew it I was going to the shop and getting a couple of the 2 litre bottles of it which I would consume within a couple of hours. I’d then go back to the shop and get more, every time I’d go to the shop I would buy more whether it was just a small bottle or a can if I was on the go. If you were to ask me if I was addicted to it I would simply say no but it would be all the liquid I would consume every single day, some days I was drinking around 10 litres of it. If I didn’t drink any within a short period of time I’d start getting headache and then I’d begin shaking as well.

After a while I couldn’t afford to keep drinking that amount for how much it was costing me so I moved onto Dr Pepper because I could bulk buy it at a local supermarket. It was ok but I found I always had a really low mood while drinking it so I renamed it Dr Shit.

Moving on from Dr Shit I tried Pepsi Max because I could get more product for less money. I would easily do one a day without any small bottles and cans I’d have while I was out. This however soon increased to one and a half a day, then two a day again without the small bottles and cans. 

On Sunday I got eight 2 litre bottles and they were gone by Wednesday, this lot however was rank it didn’t taste good. So I have decided to go to the doctors for help to completely cut it out.

This may seem silly to you but it’s not to me it’s something I know I need to do but the thought of it makes me really anxious. 

Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a cracking week and enjoy it!
