Thanks Jessiegirl, but I am sad to say that my cleanse has only lasted 3 days, 5 lbs gone. Pretty good but I hate that I cracked and had a coke, some cigs, and a bowl of cereal yesterday. I couldn't take the migraine any more. It's a little sad that as soon as I put all that crap back into my body again, I immediately felt better. I expected it to be hard doing without all things I've been so use to having for so long, BUT I FEEL LIKE A COMPLETE FAILURE. So, I think I might have went into this the wrong way. I decided to do this and then I quit everything cold turkey that day. I've been reading that you should try to cut out as much caffiene, nicotene, calories as possible before beginning the cleanse to get your body use to it 1st. My boyfriend was explaining to me that I kinda threw my body a curveball by going cold turkey on all those things in one day. SO, here's the plan, today is Friday 01/02/2009, i'm going to finish this coke i'm have right now, the rest of the day it's lots of water. I'm also going to try and thin out smoking and limit myself to so many a day over the next few days. I'm going for light foods all weekend, soups, broths, etc. Then on Sunday night, i'm going to do another SWF (Salt-Water-Flush) to kinda pre-cleanse my body before I start the cleanse again on Monday... and this time, I'm not quitting, no matter what. I want this more than anything... I want to feel young again and look great. I'm only 20 years old but I feel like i'm 40, and I know it's all the crap I keep cycling through my body. You'll all probably be coming to the end of you cleanse when I am restarting mine, but it would really be great if someone on here could be sort of like a "drug addict's sponsor" to me and keep reminding me that this is what I want, because everytime I see that box of Captain Crunch under the cabinet, or those hershey kisses in the candy dish... well those things tend to speak louder to my growling stomach than my will does to my head. So if anyone is planning to start their cleanse on Monday 1/5/09 then we can be each other's support.... I will end this with 2 questions that I have... 1. Can you chew gum on the clease??? 2. Since i'm not doing the herbal tea laxative, should I be doing the SWF (Salt-Water-Flush) twice a day or just the one i'm doing at night????
