Daniela – thank you for your post and I am so happy that it was helpful. I also really appreciate hearing stories from others who have overcome the same struggle.
I really like how you said that when you notice the desire for soda or juice, you immediately start looking for what triggered the thought. I am starting to see that when I think I want soda, it is really just my brain remembering something it has done for a very long time. And as soon as I have something else to drink, the desire goes away. So helpful – thank you!
