Diet Coke Free

No, that is not the name of a new flavor of Diet Coke, but it is what I've been for 15 out of the last 18 days! I have a friend who is the youth pastor of a church and her youth group was doing 40 days of just water to raise money for the Blood Water Mission.( The organization helps in Africa with the water and AIDS crises. The gist is that you give up everything but tap water for the season of lent and then donate what you would have spent on other beverages to the Blood Water Mission. Considering I used to drink at least 6 cans of Diet Coke a day, they are going to get a pretty good donation from us. We have terrible tap water so we are using our cooler service (or else I wouldn't be able to sustain it, however we had a stockpile of water so we don't have to actually PAY for any water)

I wish that not having the caffeine flowing through my veins would change something about me, but it doesn't. I still crave sugar, I still am emotional. I'd like to blame something on caffeine, but I can't. I know that it is for the best NOT to have it in me and having all that water IS good. I may just continue on past the 40 days.
