Unless you consider the vast amounts of Ting I consumed while in Jamaica, as of midnight tonight I will have been off pop for six months. For someone who used to take in more Code Red Mountain Dew in a day than he did oxygen, this is a pretty big deal.

Would you like some Ting, mon?

When I was a kid, I drank my fair share of soda, but now I pretty much only drink it when at a restaurant. When I was in basic training, I got to see how bad that stuff + junk food is. A few weeks into basic, we got a "patio break" (a ~15 minute break in a closed off area that had a few pay phones and some vending machines). Many people tried to make up for the weeks of strict diet by gorging on candy bars and chugging their favorite beverages. Fortunately, I was more concerned with the phones, because those people all ended up with upset stomachs, feeling ill for most of the rest of the day.
