The price of Nexium can be $.50 to $1 each online.
The price of Prilosec, likewise.
Ultra maximum strength TUMS, $9.00.
The cost of quitting sugar is of course a negative number - I don't spend money on candy bars, cakes, sodas, cookies, etc.
And I don't spend money on Nexium, Prilosec, or Tums.
When I ate sugar, I was NEVER without TUMS within arms reach. I had constant heartburn.
Since I quit sugar, I have not bought any TUMS. I may have taken a handful of them in the past year and several months, when I was dumb enough to eat and go to bed too soon.
When I tell people this, they have a tendancy to go buy cookies. I don't understand.
Well, maybe I do - addiction is addiction.
