Forget Whisky Rum Soda Coke Pepsi and all that is bottled /packages and sold. Water is best beverage in world and if alkaline then it's a big bonus. Sorry no mineral water even that's acidic by and large. Go alkaline, detox your body and body will heal itself.
Nothing is hard to quit and there's no such thing as "small quantity" when it comes to feeding body with poison. Poison is poison small or large quantity is irrelevant. I left a 27 year old habbit of smoking
.... no planning no preparation, no nicotine
gums/patch/pad etc just Cold
Turkey .... and now 6 months not even a single puff. I used to smoke 2 packs a day.
I am fighting recently detected elevated blood glucose
(border line case) levels and happy that i have the beas under control :-)
