Re: Old habits die hard

Diet Coke was my addiction of choice. On a good day I would be chugging down a couple of those 500 ml plastic bottles a day. I only ever drank out of the cans when I was desparate as to me the taste was different. When I was stressed I would head for the Diet Coke. I was an addict.

10 months ago I gave it up cold turkey and have not had any soda since. My reason for doing so was I could feel it burning my insides as it went down so figured it could not be good for me. In the 10 months snce I went clean I have not touched the stuff or any other sodas. This is quite an accomplishment because the company I work at provides free sodas. I don't intend to allow myself even one sip because I know if I do I'll fall off the wagon and be an addict again.


I be a girl, he's a boy. Think I maybe FIRED since July 08. Mid 40s, no kidlets. Actually am totally clueless as to what is going on with DH.
