Have you ever done something, or even said something, that you KNOW you have good reason for, and yet you still somehow can’t talk about it without feeling that you sound like a complete and utter douche bag?
Welcome to detox cleansing.
“Hey, Ash, wanna grab a beer?” – Sorry I can’t; I am on a detox cleanse.
“Hey, Ash, how did you like those little weenies at the graduation party?” – I didn’t eat any; no meat while I detox.
“Ashy, can I bum a cig?” – Nope, I quit. . . okay, so far so good. . .
“How’d you do it!?” – Oh, I went on a raw diet and am eating everything organic for a week while I drink special teas and an organic lemonade mixture to flush the toxins out of my body.
Well, it took longer than I thought to kick the smoking/drinking habits, but I am now on day 3 of being totally alcohol and nicotine free!
Made the trip to Whole Foods today; I officially have a drawer in the fridge of totally organic raw fruits and veggies that promote cleansing: carrots, kale, cherries, blueberries, strawberries, apples, citrus, the list goes on.
While I have been eating vegetarian for a few days, which is no news to me since I was a vegetarian for 2 years, tomorrow the hard part begins. I will be drinking laxative teas in the morning or at bedtime, while eating only raw foods and drinking the lemonade mixture during the day. 4 days of that, and then it is on to weaning myself back to eating normal food, but staying away from the nicotine.
Anyone wanna join me? It’s not too late!
We can blog about how hungry we are together!
