Day 9

Day 9 of my first 30-day juice fast

This is Day 9 of what I hope will be a 30-day juice fast. I am a 35-year-old wife, mother to three, law student. I've always been a classic Type A, but it's catching up with me. I've recently realized that I am on a downward spiral, using caffeine and Ritalin to make it through the day, then sleeping pills and alcohol to go to sleep at night. I had mood swings, my hair was falling out, and I was binge-eating. I had quit smoking the month before I started law school, and have gained 45 pounds in the past year and a half. I replaced one unhealthy habit with another. I obviously don't know how to deal with my stress. But step one appears to be simply detoxing, and like any other addiction recovery, this is uncomfortable as hell.

The first week was good. I felt strong, felt really awake and felt very positive. The last two days have been awful. I've been hungry. Not like a "nibbly" sort of hungry, but the kind of hungry that finds me standing in front of the cupboard, just staring. TV commercials were killing me, so I've stopped watching television. I keep craving all of those things I am determined to stay away from, like potato chips and cupcakes and enchiladas and chips with guacamole. I know that this is the addiction taking control of me, so I fight. I imagine that anyone kicking a habit to cocaine or liquor has the same sort of battle.

So this is me. I have faith that I can see this through. I have done crazier things, made more extreme changes in my life. This will be worth it in the end. For those who want to know, I drink about 24 ounces of juice a day and a whole lot of water. I use Dr. Brandt's green tea extract twice a day and take a multivitamin. I have completely weaned myself off of the caffeine and the Ritalin, though I still do take melatonin some nights. The insomnia is definitely better now that there are no stimulants in my system, but not completely gone yet. Please feel free to comment or say hello or share your own experiences. Thanks!
