I hate to say this but hard times are a part of the healing process so here goes...
I have not drank pop/soda for several months now.
I have not seen any benefits from not doing so. I know it is supposed to be better for me but I don't feel any better because of not drinking it.
Today I an having extreme cravings for the sweet, wonderful taste of it. It is cheap and it tastes good!
I'm not going to drink any but I sure do want to!
I would have thought that after several months of not consuming it I might have noticed some positive physical change in myself... Not yet that I know of.
