I have a problem.
And that problem’s name is Diet Coke.
I love it. It tastes like joy, and smells like freedom.
And yet, as my family is prone to point out, it’s also basically rat poison in a can.
You know, minor details.
But after the turn of the year, I realized HOW MUCH I was really drinking and spending on that dark brown elixir. (Spoiler alert: way too much.) So I decided that I would cut back. I went to drinking one per day, which was hard. Even harder was when I decided to go to 3 per week.
Tomorrow, however, starts the real test. I’m giving up Diet Coke for lent.
40 full days of no soda. I figure if I can make it 40 days, then I’ll have pretty much kicked the habit, and I’ll have gone a long way in to decreasing my dependence on caffeine.
So wish me luck. And maybe pray for my husband.
