Yes, I was addicted to coke. Actually, it was diet coke and I was a two-can-a-day junkie. Since I never drank coffee, it was my way to get a caffeine buzz in the morning and keep me going mid afternoon. I thought I needed it. However, my higher self kept telling me that soft drinks were an unhealthy habit I needed to quit.
So, I reached into my handy toolbox of universal principles. I set an intention and asked for support to make a clean break. First, I created an affirmation that helped me remember that my body craved water, not soda. “Water is my energy drink,” I would say to myself and anyone else who cared to listen. Then I visualized a glass of diet coke filled with dead bugs. Actually, that image just came to me once I set my intention and I would conjure it up each time I passed a vending machine and was tempted to drop my quarters in. At first I’d have one or two drinks a week and then weeks would go by without a soda fix. When I would have a sip, the thrill was gone. I’ve been clean for several weeks now and I feel good. My energy comes from eating right, exercising and finding reasons to laugh. I love my water and an occasional glass of pink grapefruit juice–my new healthy treat.
What change are you ready to make? Get to where you want to be faster by capitalizing on the power of universal principles. You can drink to that!
