Dear Family, Friends, Acquaintances, & People I Don't Know,
I have a confession.
I started drinking diet soda again. It happened this summer. One here. Two there. Grab a bottle for a road trip. Drink some on vacation. (Hey, it's vacation!) Start keeping 2 liter bottles in the fridge...
It's no longer a once in a very long while thing. It's a once every other day thing.
On July 30th, shit hit the fan. I bought a 2 liter of Diet Coke at Aldi's. I put in my fridge around 2:00 pm. By 11:00 pm, it was nearly gone.
That almost 2 liter of Diet Coke day was supposed to be my last hurrah... Until the next day when I finished the bottle. YOU SEE? I CAN'T HAVE IT IN THE HOUSE.
I have no excuse for this behavior. After giving up fake sugary drinks last June, I managed to go the entire summer without any, except for a small mistake in Atlantic City. Once I made it through the summer, I had a diet drink once in a blue moon. Less than once a month. So my point is, I have given it up before. I have functioned for a year or so without giving in to temptation save for a couple times. And I'm okay with that. Diet soda once in a blue moon is not going to kill me.
But this summer I have relapsed. I am back to square one. I need to give it up completely. There is no reason I need to be drinking this much diet soda or any diet soda at all. I would rather put real sugar into my body than fake sugar.
But this is it. No more fake sugary drinks. I'm going cold turkey!
Wish me luck!
Do you drink diet drinks? Why or why not?
