Diet Coke-My Battling Addiction

I had a bad headache at work today. I rarely get headaches. I kept thinking what could bring on such an annoying ache? And then it dawned on me. It was a Diet Coke headache-meaning I needed that lovely nectar now! I had given up on Diet Coke a few months ago. I was doing really well actually. I used to have Diet Coke everyday with my lunch or a pick-me-up around 2-3 p.m. in the afternoon to help get me through the rest of the work day. I decided I didn't want to be a slave to this drink anymore. So I gave it up for a few months. But I have slipped back into Diet Cokes power yet again! It started with this summer heat. It is so refreshing to have a cold drink when laying out by the pool or just while running errands. Slowly but surely I have been drinking and becoming addicted again. So addicted that I am positive this is why I had a headache today. I succumbed and went to the lunchroom and purchased my favorite Diet Coke with lime. My headache was gone, a sure sign I am an addict. HELP!!


  1. oh that stinks!!! i'm sorry.

  2. come on bev, it's not so bad... everyone's doing it. try it- just this once!

    So I guess I shouldn't mention the 2 liter in my fridge? How I can suck one down in 3 minutes and not even burp when I'm done? How my kids call it "mommy's medicine"? How they look at it longingly, and I secretly let them drink it when Nils isn't around? Maybe we both need help. Or, maybe just another Coke.
