I have given this up. Probably and sadly one of THE hardest things I have had to do! I realized one day that I had drank nothing but the chemical infused beverage. No water..only coffee and DC. That is just plain awful! My car had gotten bombarded with little peppermints from my daily visit to Sonic's Happy Hour...the car hop even knew me! I am not even joking when I say that a day could NOT go by without me having one. If for some reason I didn't make Happy Hour, my husband would be sweet and go get me one. It had to be a fountain, not a can or a bottle. Only a fountain Diet Coke would make my day seem complete. I noticed that if I didn't recieve my bubbly beverage that burned my throat on its way down and give me sheer pleasure, hasn't happened... I would get somehow angry and bitter and down right ridiculous that I would try to find some excuse to go get one, find it and slurp it down.
Yes, I know this is sad, ridiculous and silly. That is why I have to come to terms that I was addicted to Diet Coke, and that Coca-Cola was a company that preyed off of people like me. Ha! It worked for a very long time...But, now I am proud to say that it has been a week since I have enjoyed its goodness! I have made myself drink only water in its place! High Five to me! Woohoo! I am patting myself on the back for this great accomplishment! If you are a Diet Coke addict like I was, you will realize what kind of feat this truly is! It is like giving up toilet paper or something people! HARD STUFF!
I am now loving my new friend water! Water, how I love you! You make me feel full and you are supposed to make me have pretty skin and even burn calories so they say...I hope that you live up to that! So, cheers to water and a million trips to the ladies room! Ha!
