Yesterday, I drank my first soda, a Full Throttle, since October (a difference of six months). It was surprisingly just as I remembered it. The energy was amazing. It felt like I was a kid again with seemingly never ending energy, even when I went to bed it was because I was sleepy not because I was tired. I did however notice an extremely mild headache toward the beginning of drinking it, but the overall experience was revitalizing.
I want to point out that this was not a weakness to which I surrendered; I have resisted every offer of soda of any sort and have not craved a soda or energy drink in all of that time. I chose to have one when I remembered why I stopped being a vegetarian: this is my last life on earth, and there are many things that can't come with me so, I should enjoy them while I'm here.
I used to think that I was addicted to energy drinks, and I may have been, but I believe that in all this time of abstinence my control over desire has lead to a better grasp of moderation.
