Quit pop.

Posted by ArtistJ - January 2nd, 2011


Big news! On Nov. 1st 2010 I quit pop.
Withdraw was rough. It took 60+ hours of withdrawal migraine, and three separate nausea induced vomits before the symptoms have faded. And then I was physically free, but the psychological battle raged on for a few weeks. It was especially hard when eating out! So weird to choose lemonade instead of diet coke @ subway!

Today though, after a decade of drinking four or more 2liters of pop a day...
I am caffeine free for 2 months!

oh yea midwest people call it pop

I FOUND YOU!!!! hey whats up homie, cant believe your off your natural drug of choice, but in some sense i guess i should be happy. hows work been? What have you been doing lately?

Drink some coffee man...:'(

Holy shit... shrugging off an entire aspect of your identity takes a lot of balls.

Congratulations!

SODA.

hope youre doing well man. I was in Chicago for Lollapalooza!

Oh cool, which acts did you see?

I personally am too broke to see any show that costs more than $40, and am generally against Lollapalooza for two reasons:

1) Its bad for my local economy & music scene because bands playing the festival have to follow a exclusivity claus that prevents them from playing within 300 miles of Chicago for 180 days before and 90 days after the festival.

2) There are so many different acts that the people next to you might not even like the band they are watching. Like, when you go to a smaller show, you know the girl across the room and you at least like the same music, and can start up a conversation using this as a crutch. But at Lolla, half the people only like a quarter of the bands and many are just there as a status statement that they could afford to go.

irregardless, I hope you had fun.

grats, I remember way back in the day when we used to talk on aim about your soda addiction and other stuff, good luck

Wow...
Really?
I swear I can remember talking to you in a chat, alot.
Good work.
If I was there i would shake your hand. Water isn't so bad.
